Winfield S. Weeden (1847–1908)


I am walk­ing thro’ this earth-life,
Often wea­ry, oft­en sad;
But my Sav­ior walk­eth with me,
And His pre­sence makes me glad.


Jesus know­eth ev’ry sor­row,
Jesus know­eth ev­ery fear;
And He whis­pers thro’ life’s sha­dows,
Do not trem­ble, I am near!

I am tra­vel­ing to a ci­ty
Where the light is ne­ver dim,
And my Sav­ior leads so gent­ly,
It is sweet to walk with Him.


I am look­ing for re­demp­tion
Thro’ the mer­its of my king;
Blessèd beams of free sal­va­tion
Shine about me as I sing.
