1 We journey on, not knowing
What trial may arise,
Or what bright joy be glowing
Beneath tomorrow’s skies;
But Christ will surely keep me
From aught that would defile,
I know my loving Saviour
Is with me all the while.

Refrain:
With me all the while,
With me all the while;
I know my loving Saviour
Is with me all the while.
With me all the while,
With me all the while;
I know my loving Saviour
Is with me all the while.

2 Sweet ties are often broken
In this, our life below,
The parting word is spoken,
And tears of sorrow flow.
But comfort, like a rainbow,
Upon the cloud will smile;
I know my loving Saviour
Is with me all the while. [Refrain]

3 In danger and temptation
He’s always at my side,
My strength and consolation,
Whatever may betide.
Till Eden’s fields of beauty
Before my vision smile,
I know my loving Saviour
Is with me all the while. [Refrain]
