Lyrics

Anywhere with Je­sus I can safe­ly go,
Anywhere He leads me in this world be­low;
Anywhere with­out Him dear­est joys would fade;
Anywhere with Je­sus I am not afraid.

Refrain

Anywhere, any­where! Fear I can­not know;
Anywhere with Je­sus I can safe­ly go.

Anywhere with Je­sus I need fear no ill,
Though temp­ta­tions ga­ther round my path­way still;
He Him­self was tempt­ed that He might help me;
Anywhere with Je­sus I may vic­tor be.

Refrain

Anywhere with Je­sus I am not alone;
Other friends may fail me, He is still my own;
Though His hand may lead me ov­er drear­est ways,
Anywhere with Je­sus is a house of praise.

Refrain

Anywhere with Je­sus, ov­er land and sea,
Telling souls in dark­ness of sal­va­tion free;
Ready as He sum­mons me to go or stay,
Anywhere with Je­sus when He points the way.

Refrain

Anywhere with Je­sus I can go to sleep,
When the dark­en­ing sha­dows round about me creep,
Knowing I shall wak­en ne­ver­more to roam;
Anywhere with Je­sus will be home, sweet home.

Refrain
