William J. Kirkpatrick (1838–1921)


My Sav­ior is with me, and walks close be­side me;
I fol­low Him glad­ly wher­ev­er He leads;
He cleans­es so ful­ly and keeps me so sweet­ly,
According to pro­mise sup­pli­eth my need.


O glo­ry to Je­sus, He bless­es and saves me,
He sa­tis­fies now, and will still be my guide;
Tho’ trou­bles o’er­take me and dan­gers be­fall me,
His grace will up­hold me what­ev­er be­tide.

He’s with me in mer­cy, He’s with me in spir­it,
There’s no­thing can harm me when He is so near;
He ne­ver will leave me, He’s with me this mo­ment,
My light in all dark­ness, my trust in all fear.


I’m saved, and re­joice in this glo­ri­ous sal­va­tion;
I’m won­drous­ly kept, and my path­way is bright;
I live in the hope of the great re­sur­rec­tion,
When I shall be­hold Him in gar­ments of light.
