Joy in my sadness, hope in my tears;
Now let Thy presence banish all my fears.
Lo, I am waiting, here at Thy throne;
O my Redeemer, leave me not alone.


Wherever I may go, wherever I may be,
Thou in whom I trust, O still abide with me;
Keep this heart of mine,
And hide my life with Thine,
That I may gather with the faithful.

Come when the morning breaks on my sight;
Come in the noontide, lovely, calm and bright;
Come when the day-beams gently have flown;
O my Redeemer, leave me not alone.


Star of the weary, rise on my way;
Where Thou art leading, joyful I obey.
When, o’er life’s ocean, storm billows foam,
O my Redeemer, safely bear me home.
