Lyrics

When the way is dark and dreary,
And your path would lead astray,
If you’ll only trust in Jesus,
He will guide you all the way.

Refrain

He’ll go with you, He’ll go with you,
He’ll go with you to the end;
In your joy or in your sorrow,
He will be your dearest friend.

When your heart is sad and lonely,
And your grief is hard to bear,
If you’ll only trust in Jesus,
He will all your sorrows share.

Refrain

Though temptations come upon you,
Calling, calling day by day,
If you only trust in Jesus,
You can never go astray.

Refrain

When your work on earth is over,
And you reach the river wide,
Christ the Savior will go with you,
He will bear you o’er the tide.
