Be With Me, Lord (Christian Hymn) Lyrics

Be with me, Lord,
I cannot live without Thee,
I dare not try to take one step alone,
I cannot bear the loads of life, unaided,
I need Thy strength to lean myself upon.

Be with me, Lord,
And then if dangers threaten,
If storms of trial burst above my head,
If lashing seas leap everywhere about me,
They cannot harm, or make my heart afraid.

Be with me, Lord!
No other gift or blessing
Thou couldst bestow could with this one compare
A constant sense of Thy abiding presence,
Where’er I am, to feel that Thou art near.

Be with me, Lord,
when loneliness overtakes me,
When I must weep amid the fires of pain,
And when shall come the hour of “my departure”
For “worlds unknown,” O Lord, be with me then.
