"With You Always".

"This ray of promise falls on darkened ways. "Lo I am with you always all the days." The bright, untroubled, gladsome days of life, The days of bitterness and care and strife.

"The days when peace cloth like a river flow, The days of grief with weary hours and slow, He goes not on far journey - Christ is near, He leaves no day without its help and cheer.

"As once of old "He knew what He would do" When servants were dismayed and troubled too; So now with infinite supplies at hand He walks us though in a barrow land.

Some sweet surprise He doubtless has in store, Some secret that He never told before. For this, perhaps, He leads through shaded ways, And you will understand we many days."
