I need Thy strength to help me all the way;
I would not dare to wander from Thy side,
For storm and danger threaten far and wide.
I would not live without Thee,
O Savior, Thou art mine;
Thy love makes earth a heaven,
And life to me divine.
2. The world is full of sorrows and of fears,
And many eyes are ever shedding tears,
And hearts are well night breaking with their woe,
And many struggle vainly here below.
3. The way is fraught with danger for us all;
O Savior, never leave me lest I fall,
When Thou dost walk beside me I am strong,
To fight the many battles all along.
4. I fear no coming sorrow, light will shine;
There comes with ev’ry morrow help divine,
And when the journey’s ended, then I know,
To realms of endless glory I shall go.
