Philip P. Bliss (1838–1876)


God is al­ways near me,
Hearing what I say;
Knowing all my thoughts and deeds,
All my work and play.

God is al­ways near me,
In the dark­est night,
He can see me just the same
As by mid­day light.

God is al­ways near me,
Though so young and small;
Not a look, or word, or thought,
But God knows it all.
