1 The Lord is my light, and the strength of my life,
Then of whom shall I be afraid?
He hideth my soul from the troubles that roll,
In the cleft in the rock He has made.
Then nearer, my Savior, to Thee would I come,
Thou knowest the way that I take;
Oh, lead me to glory—there is my home—
With angels Thy praise to awake.
2 There’s One who will help in the moment of need,
When my heart filled with grief o’erflows;
My Jesus is near, and He sees every tear,
Yea, He shares all my sorrows and woes. [Refrain]
3 He giveth His angels the charge of my soul
So that none of my steps shall slide;
His promise is sure, He will keep me secure,
Though a thousand should fall by my side. [Refrain]
4 I ever would dwell in the temple of God,
Where His graces so rich unfold;
Contented to fill just the lowliest place,
That His beauty my eyes may behold. [Refrain]
