Representative Text

1 Tho’ I falter, His arm will hold me;
I can rest on His strength and grace;
Tho’ the darkness of night enfold me,
Soon I know I shall see His face.

Kept thro’ faith by His mighty pow’r,
He to shield me is ever nigh;
Gives me grace for each need and hour,
O how happy, how blest am I!

2 “Tho’ an host should encamp against me,”
Why, O why should I have a fear?
Lost in sin, Jesus sought and found me,
Now to keep He is ever near. [Refrain]

3 Jesus knows all about the pathway
I must travel from day to day;
When on earth as a “Man of sorrows,”
He walked over the same hard way. [Refrain]
