When my sins like mountains rise,
Savior, be Thou near me;
Wipe the tears from weeping eyes,
Comfort Thou and cheer me.


Give me peace, give me peace,
Then shall nothing grieve me;
Help me trust Thy gracious word:
I will never leave thee.

When, like gold in furnace tried,
Thou shalt purge and prove me,
With my Savior at my side,
Sorrows shall not move me.


When I tread the vale of death,
Let not fears confound me;
May I yield my dying breath,
With Thine arms around me.
