1 The Master walks with me;
He guides my trusting soul,
A holy ray lights up the way
To yonder shining goal,
I’ll follow where He leadeth me
With constant loyalty,
For, even should the way seem dark,
He’s always good to me.

Refrain:
He’s always good to me,
He’s always good to me,
By night and day along the way,
He’s always good to me.

2 He gives me perfect peace
When storms are on the deep,
I have no fear with Jesus near,—
He lulls my fears to sleep.
He shields me underneath His wings
From foes I cannot see,
My Father loves His trusting child,
He’s always good to me. [Refrain]

3 My walk with Christ is sweet;
My soul is full of sing
The sky is bright, my heart is light
The whole good way along.
The love of God about me falls
Like manna rich and free,
And, though I cannot merit it,
He’s always good to me. [Refrain]
