Representative Text

1 Stay Thou near by! Whom have I, Lord, but Thee?
Earth’s dearest friends may change—their love grow cold;
O Savior, Lord, Thou’rt all in all to me,
Thy love’s untold.

2 Stay Thou near by! I dare not tread alone
The thorny path that once Thy feet didst tread;
Safe shall I be with Thee to lean upon,
And by Thee led.

3 Stay Thou near by! Life’s journey soon will end;
Mine eyes are dim, I cannot see my way
O tho’t supreme! From earth I shall ascend
To brighter day.
