Lyrics

I am with Thee! He hath said it,
In His truth and tender grace;
Sealed the promise, grandly spoken,
With how many a mighty token,
Of His love and faithfulness.

He is with thee! in thy dwelling,
Shielding thee from fear of ill;
All thy burdens kindly bearing,
For thy dear ones gently caring,
Guarding, keeping, blessing still.

He is with thee! with thee always,
All the nights and all the days;
Never failing, never frowning,
With His loving-kindness crowning,
Tuning all thy life to praise.

He is with thee! thine own master,
Leading, loving to the end;
Brightening joy and lightening sorrow,
All today, yet more tomorrow,
King and Savior, Lord and friend.
