Representative Text

1 Stay nigh me, O dear Saviour,
In all my mortal strife;
Thou only canst sustain me,
And keep me pure in life.

I trust Thee, Lord, my steps to guide,
And ‘neath Thy wings I safely hide.

2 Stay nigh me, O dear Saviour,
My only sure defense;
I seek Thy guarding presence,
And naught shall draw me thence. [Refrain]

3 Stay nigh me, O dear Saviour!
In sorrow be my peace,
In perils be my succor,
And bid the storm to cease. [Refrain]

4 Stay nigh me, O dear Saviour!
In death be still my stay,
And draw me from deep waters,
To dwell with Thee for aye. [Refrain]
