1 When the power of evil is near,
Then the smile of my Lord I see;
In temptation’s dark hour He is near,
And is always keeping me.

I could not do without Him if I would,
I would not do without Him if I could;
Since from sin He set me free,
He is always blessing me,
And I would not do without Him if I could.

2 When the friendships of earth prove untrue,
Still the love of my Lord I see;
And no matter what others may do,
He is always loving me. [Refrain]

3 Ev’ry blessing He sends I receive,
And I praise Him where’er I be;
It is joy to my soul to believe
He is always blessing me. [Refrain]
