1 Waiting to guard and guide me,
Walking so close beside me,
Safe in His fold to hide me,
Jesus my wonderful Savior.

Ready to help and hear me,
Waiting to bless and cheer me,
Jesus is always near me,
O praise Him forevermore.

2 From chains of sin He freed me,
Wherever He may lead me,
Whenever He may need me,
Gladly I follow my Savior. [Refrain]

3 Why should I fear tomorrow?
In gladness or in sorrow,
Comfort from Him I borrow,
Jesus my wonderful Savior. [Refrain]

4 When earthly ties are riven,
I shall go home to heaven,
There shall to me be given
A crown by my wonderful Savior. [Refrain]
