Verse 1: Walk beside me, O my Savior, While life’s morning sky is bright; Grant me now Thy loving favor, Flood my path with heav’nly light; Whether good or ill betide me, Whether skies be dark or clear, Ever stay so close beside me, I may know and feel Thee near.
Verse 2: When the noontide’s glowing splendor Brings its weight of toil and care, May Thy love, so pure and tender, All my heavy burdens bear; In a weary land, provide me Shelt’ring rock and cooling spring; When the tempest rages, hide me Underneath Thy folded wing.
Verse 3: When the twilight shades descending, Warn my soul that night is near, With the hues of sunset blending, Let the light of heav’n appear; Thru the valley, Savior take me, Close my eyes when night shall come; Then bid angel voices wake me, Sweetly singing, “Welcome home.”
Coda: Blessed Savior, walk with me; Take away all anxious fear; Ever stay so close beside me, I may know and feel Thee near.
