1 There’s a veil that hangs before me,
And an unknown pathway hides;
There’s an eye that’s watching o’er me,
An almighty hand that guides.
So I need not fear the morrow;
Peace is in my heart today,
For my blessed Saviour tells me,
He’ll be with me all the way.

All the way, all the way,
He’ll be with me all the way;
O my blessed Saviour tells me,
He’ll be with me all the way.

2 At the blood-stained cross he met me,
Bade me look to him and live;
Though temptations shall beset me,
Overcoming pow’r he’ll give.
There’s a joy that shines about me,
With a pure and heav’nly ray,
For my blessed Saviour tells me,
He’ll be with me all the way. [Refrain]

3 In the time of pain and sadness,
His sweet promise I will test;
Welcome, sunny hours of gladness,
By his smile made doubly blest.
Ev’ry step that leads to glory
Shall his wondrous love display,
For my blessed Saviour tells me,
He’ll be with me all the way. [Refrain]
