If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.@Psalm 139:9-10

I am still with Thee,
Where’er I stray;
I am still with Thee,
By night and day;
On the morning’s wings
Tho’ I repair
To the farthest bound,
The Lord is there!

Refrain

In that home above,
Oh, let me be
Forevermore,
Dear Lord, with Thee.

I am still with Thee,
In bliss or woe;
I am still with Thee,
I joyous know;
On Thy arm of might
My soul shall lean,
When the storm is loud,
Or sky serene!

Refrain

I am still with Thee,
Tho’ far I rove;
I am still with Thee,
And feel Thy love;
In each trying hour
Be Thou my friend,
And my journey thro’
My steps attend.

Refrain

I am still with Thee,
Tho’ from my sight
Thou art hidden still
By day and night;
When the vale of death
My feet shall near,
May Thy presence quell
My every fear.
