209 Be with Me, Lord

Sometimes I feel that I could fight an army with just me and You, and there’s no one could harm me;
Oh, but sometimes I can feel a little shy.
It’s then I need to know that You are there; that’s why

I’m singing
Be with me, Lord, (When I’m down,)
Be with me, Lord, (when I’m lonely,)
Be with me Lord (when I’m tired)
Be with me, Be with me (I need you only.)
Be with me Lord (When I’m down,)
Be with me Lord (when I’m lonely,)
Be with me Lord (when I need You, Lord,)
Be my only God.

I know You said that I would not be tested more than I could bear, and that You have my best in mind.
With ev’rything that ever comes my way,
I know You’re in control so hear me as I pray;

Now help me, Lord, to share what I’ve been given, help me make a diff’rence with the life I’m living.
As I show my neighbor where true treasure’s stored,
Help me know you promised You’d be with me, Lord!
