330. The Pilgrim's Confidence

1 Walking through life’s dark, shady valley,
Walking with Jesus day by day;
Crossing the vale through death’s cold alley,
He will be with me all the way.
Keep me, O Lord, from harm and danger,
Trusting Thy grace while here I stay;
I am a pilgrim and a stranger,
Help me to humbly watch and pray;
I am a pilgrim and a stranger,
Help me to humbly watch and pray.

2 If the sun shine my heart is cheerful,
If the clouds come I can rejoice;
Help me, O Lord, to ever be thankful;
I have, like Mary, made the wise choice.
Precious Redeemer, keep me faithful,
By Thy own strength and grace I stand;
Help me do right and live more grateful,
Soon I shall reach the shining strand;
Help me do right and live more grateful,
Soon I shall reach the shining strand.

3 Welcome the storms, my hope is abounding;
Let the waves come, my anchor is sure;
Fixed in the Rock on which I am standing,
How can I fall when all is secure?
Wonderful peace in Thee I’m possessing,
Vict’ry through Christ I ever shall sing;
Let the rain fall in showers of blessing,
Homage and praise to Thee I would bring;
Let the rain fall in showers of blessing,
Homage and praise to Thee I would bring.
