Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.@Isaiah 41:10

Cow Hollow Mrs. S. V. Rue, 1900 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I will help thee! hear the promise
Of the One who reigns above;
Though I’m weak and heavy laden,
He will fill my heart with love.

Refrain

Fear thou not, for I am with thee,
I will hold thee by the hand,

All along the pilgrim journey,
Safely to the Promised Land.

Led by Him, and trusting ever,
In His grace from day to day,
I shall be secure from danger,
From Him I shall never stray.

Refrain

Keep me ever near Thee, Jesus,
With my hand enclosed in Thine;
Then, when duty calls, or danger,
I’ll not murmur nor repine.

Refrain
