Guadalajara, Robert Lowry, 1884 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Take the promise as you go,
Such as true believers know;
Hide the Word within your heart;
Christ and you can never part.

Refrain

O Thou blessèd Son of God,
Help me walk where Thou hast trod;
Let Thy presence always be
Life and love and peace to me.

What if round you falls the night?
See the Daystar gleaming bright;
What if clouds obscure the day?
Christ is with you all the way.

Refrain

Child of faith, be firm, be strong;
Heav’nly hopes to you belong;
Tho’ the earth be overthrown,
Christ the Lord will know His own.
