I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.@Matthew 28:20

Will­iam M. Hays, in the Song Crown, by Aus­tin Tay­lor et al. (Aus­tin, Tex­as: Firm Foun­da­tion Pub­lish­ing, 1912), num­ber 87 (🔊 pdf nwc).

When we are thinking of Heaven and home,
He is near,
And when we are walking the valley of gloom,
He is near us then.

Refrain

O what a friend He is to me,
Waiting to hear the faintest call;
Ever unchanging and ever to be
Close to us all.

When the poor soul by temptation is tried,
He is near,
And when it is plunged ’neath the oncoming tide,
He is near us then.

Refrain

When in the soul doubts and fears do arise,
He is near,
And if in our sorrow the soul to Him cries,
He is near us then.

Refrain
