1 We walk and talk together,
My King and I,
In ev’ry kind of weather,
On low ground or high;
He knows how well I love Him,
How oft I pray,
That naught shall be above Him
In my life today.

I am willing alway
If to go or to stay,
I will do as He bids me,
Nor will I ask Him why.
My communion is sweet,
And my rapture complete,
As we walk and talk together,
My Lord and I.

2 He knows my ev’ry trial
And He can see,
My lack of self denial
Grievous is to me;
I’ll leave all else behind me,
To Him I’ll cling,
And trust the world shall find me
Walking with my King. [Refrain]

3 So blow, ye winds of sorrow,
And grief’s wild wave,
I’m dreading not the morrow,
For my King shall save;
In ev’ry kind of weather,
Low ground or high,
We walk and talk together
Still, my King and I. [Refrain]
