The Lord…will be…a refuge in times of trouble.@Psalm 9:9

Miriam E. Oatman, in The Best Gospel Songs and Their Composers (Dalton, Georgia: The A. J. Showalter Company, 1904), number 246.

W. R. Chambers (🔊 pdf nwc).

Whatever the woes that betide me,
Whatever the ills that befall,
There’s naught that can injure or harm me,
For Christ is my all in all.

Refrain

The Lord is my refuge in trouble,
My shelter whatever befall;
My heart cannot fear when the Master is near,
For He is my all in all.

The Savior is leading me gently,
And guiding my steps lest they fall;
No danger that comes can alarm me,
For He is my all in all.

Refrain

With Him as my guide and my master,
No darkness nor gloom can appall;
His glory dispels every shadow,
And He is my all in all.
