Lyrics

Everywhere with Jesus,
Thus I find sweet rest;
Just the way He goeth,
Is for me the best.

Refrain

Everywhere, everywhere,
Thus I find sweet rest;
Just the way He goeth,
Is for me the best.

Brightest day without Him,
Has but clouded light;
Walking in His presence
Even night is bright.

Refrain

When I follow Jesus,
Pressing to His side,
Even ills seem helpful,
As a gracious tide.

Refrain

If His goings take me
Into pathways strait,
Yet His blessèd presence
Brightens every state.
