541. THE SAVIOUR WITH ME

Christ in Song,

1.
I must have the Saviour with me,
For I dare not walk alone;
I must feel His presence near me,
And His arm around me thrown.

Chorus:
Then my soul shall fear no ill,
Let Him lead me where He will,
I will go without a murmur,
And His footsteps follow still.

2.
I must have the Saviour with me,
For my faith, at best, is weak;
He can whisper words of comfort
That no other voice can speak.  [Chorus]

3.
I must have the Saviour with me,
In the onward march of life, 
Thro' the tempest and the sunshine,
Thro' the battle and the strife.  [Chorus]

4.
I must have the Saviour with me,
And His eye the way must guide,
Till I reach the vale of Jordan,
Till I gain the other side.  [Chorus]
