Representative Text

1 ‘Tis sweet to know that ev’ry hour
My soul may speak to God in pray’r;
He heareth me by day or night,
And I can find Him anywhere.

Oh! I can find Him anywhere,
That blessed Friend to me so dear;
I’ll trust in His unfailing care,
For I can find Him anywhere.

2 In crowded street or desert path,
‘Mid surging throngs or all alone,
He listens when in faith I call,
And all my needs by Him are known. [Refrain]

3 When by the tempter’s arts assailed,
On strength divine I can rely,
And if some grief or trial comes,
I know that heav’nly help is nigh. [Refrain]

4 When life’s brief day draws to a close,
My soul need have no fear or care;
While passing thro’ the shadowed vale,
I know that I shall find Him there. [Refrain]
