May Jesus be with me
Artist: John David Coupland
and black is the day,
When sweet little evils
would lead me astray,
When all sight has failed
and poor faith takes the strain,
I will call out to God
to restore me again.

May Jesus be with me
wherever I go,
His power before me,
his peace here below,
His love on my left
and his word on my right,
Oh Jesus, my Saviour,
be with me tonight.

When strong winds come lashing
the walls of my home,
I'll turn then to Jesus
who sits on the throne,
And call out for strength
to endure such a storm
In the pitch black of midnight,
I'll pray for the dawn.

And when I draw close to
the end of my days,
When all of life's colours
have faded to grey,
I shall not despair
I will wait for the dawn,
When the Lord in his mercy
will carry me home.
