Representative Text

1 With God and His friendship, his Spirit and Word,
With brethren partaking the bread of our Lord,
With courage and joy we will meet coming days:
The Shepherd is with us, the Shepherd is with us,
The dear, loving Shepherd, He guides all our ways.

2 In perilous times, thro’ the gloom of the night,
A host marches on through the darkness to light;
These pilgrims obscured, are disowned by the world,
But owned by the Master, but owned by the Master,
They march on to glory, with banners unfurled.

3 The Pillar that guides us thro’ dangers and strife,
The Rock that refreshes with waters of life,
Is Christ and His love and His soul cleansing blood:
Our soul’s life and glory, our soul’s life and glory,
In joys and in sorrows with us He has stood.

4 O Jesus! be with us, abide with us still,
And care for us, bear us, and teach us Thy Will.
Thy glory, O Jesus, Thou’llt soon let us see:
Praise, glory, and honor, praise, glory and honor,
Praise, glory and honor, our Savior, to Thee!
