1 When the waves of time sweep o’er me,
I shall never be dismayed,
For my Savior goes before me,
And He says,"Be not afraid."

Christ is near me, He will cheer me,
Whatsoe’er my lot may be;
He will guide me, keep and hide me,
’Neath His wings, ’neath His wings eternally.

2 When the cares of life surround me,
Christ each heavy burden bears;
Since thro’ love He sought and found me,
Every grief He freely shares. [Refrain]

3 When the way seems rough and dreary,
Jesus gently takes my hand,
And He whispers, "Come, ye weary,
Just beyond is Beulah Land." [Refrain]
