1 Take the promise as you go,
Such as true believers know;
Hide the word within your heart;
Christ and you can never part.

O thou blessed Son of God,
Help me walk where Thou hast trod;
Let Thy presence always be
Life and love and peace to me.

2 What if round you falls the night?
See the Day-star gleaming bright;
What if clouds obscure the day?
Christ is with you all the way. [Refrain]

3 Child of faith, be firm, be strong;
Heav’nly hopes to you belong;
Tho' the earth be overthrown,
Christ the Lord will know His own. [Refrain]
