1 When the shadows 'round you gather,
When the day is long and drear,
In the morning, or at midnight,
Your best Friend is always near.

Refrain:
Always near, always near,
(He is always near, He is always near,)
Your best Friend is always near;
In your gladness, in your sadness,
Your best Friend is always near.

2 When your courage almost fails you,
When you need a word of cheer,
There is One who will not leave you:
Your best Friend is always near. [Refrain]

3 When your fondest hopes have perished,
when so freely falls the tear,
He who knows and feels your sorrow -
Your best Friend - is always near. [Refrain]

4 When the valley of the shadow
You are treading, do not fear;
One there is who will go with you:
Your best Friend is always near. [Refrain]
