Lyrics

Jesus will walk with me down thru the val­ley,
Jesus will walk with me ov­er the plain;
When in the sha­dow or when in the sun­shine,
If He goes with me I shall not com­plain.

Refrain

Jesus will walk with me,
He will talk with me;
He will walk with me;
In joy or in sor­row, to­day and to­mor­row,
I know He will walk with me.

Jesus will walk with me when I am tempt­ed,
Giving me strength as my need may de­mand;
When in af­flict­ion His pre­sence is near me,
I am up­held by His al­migh­ty hand.

Refrain

Jesus will walk with me, guard­ing me ev­er,
Giving me vic­to­ry thru storm and thru strife;
He is my com­fort­er, coun­sel­or, lead­er,
Over the un­ev­en jour­ney of life.

Refrain

Jesus will walk with me in life’s fair morn­ing,
And when the sha­dows of ev­en­ing must come;
Living or dy­ing, He will not for­sake me.
Jesus will walk with me all the way home.

Refrain
