Representative Text

1 The Lord is with us, let our courage falter not;
He leads the way before us; what have we to fear?
His everlasting arms are underneath us,
And his voice in ev’ry time of trial we may hear.

Where the Shepherd leads us,
We’ll follow all the way;
Where the Master needs us,
We’ll work for him today.

2 The foe, however strong, shall flee before us,
And the clouds that rise shall rifted be, and fade away;
His word of promise is: “I will be with thee;
I will go before, and lead thee in the perfect way.” [Refrain]

3 To do his perfect will our daily prayer shall be;
Wherever he may call or need us we will go;
A Shepherd, and a Master, kind and patient,
He will point the way, and grace abundant will bestow. [Refrain]
