Yes, for me, for me He car­eth
With a bro­ther’s ten­der care;
Yes with me, with me He shar­eth
Every bur­den, ev­ery fear.
Yes, o’er me, o’er me He watch­eth,
Ceaseless watch­eth, night and day;
Yes, e’en me, e’en me He snatch­eth
From the pe­rils of the way.

Yes for me He stand­eth plead­ing
At the mer­cy seat above;
Ever for me in­te­rced­ing,
Constant in un­tir­ing love.
Yes, in me, in me He dwell­eth;
I in Him, and He in me!
And my emp­ty soul He fill­eth,
Here and through eter­ni­ty.
