Walk Thou with me, nor let my footsteps stray
Apart from Thee, throughout life's threatening way;
Be Thou my Guide, the Path I cannot see;
Close to Thy side, Lord, let me walk with Thee.
Dear Savior, let me trust my hand in Thine,
And let me know Thy steps are guiding mine;
Life's changing way is oft times dark to me,
I fear no ill if I may walk with Thee.
Through weary years my way hath miry been;
My bitter tears Thy pitying eye hath seen;
My fainting heart hath heard Thy voice divine;
My trembling hand asks but to rest in Thine.
No earthly foe can give my spirit fear;
No threatening woe can quail when Thou art near;
No tempter's snare can turn my steps aside,
For in Thy ca Was It For Me?
Was it for me, the nails, the spear,
The cruel thorns, the mocking jeer,
That rugged cross, 'twixt earth and sky-
Was it for me He came to die?
He loved me so! He loved me so!
Dark Calvary He chose to know,
To vanquish sin and death and woe;
'Twas all because He loved me so.
Was it for me, that opened tomb,
Dispelling fear and death and gloom?
So vast a truth proclaims to me
That I through Him can victor be.
Yes, all for me-the cross, the grave,
A risen Lord with power to save!
My joyful heart is filled with praise
As songs of happiness I raise.
