Lyrics

When the skies are clear and bright,
And my pathway gleams with light;
When the gentle breezes flow,
God is with me, this I know.

Refrain

This I know, this I know;
God is with me, this I know,
For His promise tells me so;
God is with me, this I know.

In my struggles for the right,
In the darkness of the night,
When the tempests rudely blow,
God is with me, this I know.

Refrain

In my efforts to be true,
While I strive His will to do,
When, where duty calls, I go,
God is with me, this I know.

Refrain

When my loved ones fade and die,
And no stars are in the sky,
When night covers all below,
God is with me, this I know.
