Full Text

1 Whom have I in heav’n but Thee?
Blessed Saviour, mighty Friend;
On the land or on the sea,
Thou canst keep me to life’s end.

2 Tho’ my strength of heart may fail,
As I journey by the way,
Thou wilt guard when foes assail
Me upon my pilgrim way.

3 Thou wilt guide me with Thy hand,
Me to glory wilt receive;
If I in Thy counsel stand,
And in child-like faith believe.

4 Help me, Christ, to walk nigh Thee,
Ever close to Thy dear side;
Then shall all end well with me,
Saved by Thee, in heav’n abide.
