In heav’n­ly love abid­ing,
No change my heart shall fear,
And safe is such con­fid­ing,
For no­thing chang­es here.
The storm may roar around me,
My heart may low be laid,
But God is round about me,
How can I be dis­mayed?

Wherever He may guide me,
No want shall turn me back.
My shep­herd is beside me,
And no­thing can I lack.
His wis­dom ev­er wak­eth,
His sight is ne­ver dim—
He knows the way He’s tak­ing,
And I will walk with Him.

Green pas­tures are be­fore me,
Which yet I have not seen.
Bright skies will soon be o’er me,
Where dark­est clouds have been.
My hope I can­not mea­sure,
My path to life is free.
My Sav­ior has my trea­sure,
And He will walk with me.
