45. Surely Goodness and Mercy

1 A pilgrim was I, and a-wand'ring -
In the cold night of sin I did roam
When Jesus the kind Shepherd found me -
And now I am on my way home.

Refrain:
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days, all the days of my life;
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days, all the days of my life.

2 He restoreth my soul when I'm weary;
He giveth me strength day by day.
He leads me beside the still waters;
He guards me each step of the way. [Refrain]

3 When I walk thru the dark lonesome valley,
My Savior will walk with me there;
And safely His great hand will lead me
To the mansions He's gone to prepare. [Refrain]

And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever,
And I shall feast at the table spread for me;
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days, all the days of my life,
All the days, all the days of my life.
