Bentley D. Ackley (1872–1958)


Thro’ life’s pil­grim way
I’ll jour­ney with my Sav­ior,
In the night of care
He’ll lead me to the day,
Till I en­ter Hea­ven’s
Portals by His fa­vor,
Trusting, I will go
With Je­sus all the way.


I’ll go with Him all the way to glo­ry,
I will go with Je­sus all the way,
Till I stand with­in
The home­land por­tals,
I will go with Je­sus all the way.

He will ne­ver, ne­ver
Leave me nor for­sake me;
If in Him I put my trust
I shall not stray,
For He knows the path
That lead­eth thro’ the val­ley,
And with Him there’s light
And glo­ry all the way.


Even now I seem
To hear the songs of glo­ry,
From the souls that stand
Redeemed be­fore His throne;
I re­joice, for some day
I shall sing that sto­ry,
Of the Christ who brought
Me safe­ly to my home.


When the en­emies
Of Je­sus would alarm me,
Then I cry for help
To Him who is my friend,
And He al­ways an­swers
E’er my foes can harm me,
He who con­quered death
Will keep me to the end.
