40. BE WITH ME, LORD

 

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

 

VERSE 2

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

 

VERSE 3

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 e'er I am
to feel that Thou art near

 

VERSE 4

Be with me Lord
when loneliness o'er-takes 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
