'Tis a dead world through which I walk - I am with thee
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

I am with thee.

1. 'Tis a dead world through which I walk;
  my Life, oh, still with me abide!
Each hour impart thy life anew;
  my Life, leave not my side! PDF - Midi

2. Within, without, deep darkness reigns;
  my Light, my Light, be ever near!
I thou shouldst leave me, all is dark;
  my Light, oh stay to cheer!

3. The storm is round me and above;
  O calmer of the tempest, come!
soothe the strong blast, – too strong for me;
  or take me, take me home!

4. Deep are the waters, fierce the flame;
  be with me both in fire and wave!
Let them not seize me nor o'erwhelm,
  in trial's hour me save!

5. Before me lies a path unknown,
  it may be tears, and pain, and death:
oh, speak the word which cheers and nerves,
  'Fight the good fight of faith.'

6. Take thou my hand, my Guide, my Guide!
  My eager hand I stretch to thee:
hold thou me up, lead thou me on,
  all shall be well with me.

Horatius Bonar, The Song of the New Creation, 1872, 129-130.
