Anthony J. Showalter (1858–1924)


When the waves of time sweep o’er me,
I shall ne­ver be dis­mayed,
For my Sav­ior goes be­fore me,
And He says, Be not afraid.


Christ is near me, He will cheer me,
Whatsoe’er my lot may be;
He will guide me, keep and hide me,
’Neath His wings, ’neath His wings eter­nal­ly.

When the cares of life sur­round me,
Christ each hea­vy bur­den bears;
Since thro’ love He sought and found me,
Every grief He free­ly shares.


When the way seems rough and drea­ry,
Jesus gent­ly takes my hand,
And He whis­pers, Come, ye wea­ry,
Just be­yond is Beu­lah Land.
