1 When we are thinking of Heaven and home,
He is near,
And when we are walking the valley of gloom,
He is near us then.

Refrain:
O what a friend He is to me,
Waiting to hear the faintest call;
Ever unchanging and ever to be
Close to us all.

2 When the poor soul by temptation is tried,
He is near,
And when it is plunged ’neath the oncoming tide,
He is near us then. [Refrain]

3 When in the soul doubts and fears do arise,
He is near,
And if in our sorrow the soul to Him cries,
He is near us then. [Refrain]
