I Am With Thee

I.
‘I AM with thee !’ He hath said it
In His truth and tender grace j
Sealed the promise, grandly spoken,
With how many a mighty token

II.
He is with thee !—In thy dwelling,
Shielding thee from fear of ill;
All thy burdens kindly bearing,
For thy dear ones gently’caring,
Guarding, keeping, blessing still.

III.
He is with thee !—In thy service
He is with thee ‘ certainly,’
Filling with the Spirit’s power,
Giving in the needing hour
His own messages by thee.

IV.
He is with thee !—With thy spirit,
With thy lips, or with thy pen ;
In the quiet preparation,
In the heart-bowed congregation,
Nevermore alone again !

V.

All the nights and all the days;
Never failing, never frowning,
With His loving-kindness crowning.
Tuning all thy life to praise.

VI.

Leading, loving to the end ;
Brightening joy and lightening sorrow,
All today, yet more to-morrow.

Now, and through eternity;
Then with Him for ever dwelling,
Thou shalt share His joy excelling.
Thou with Christ and Christ with thee I

I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. — John 10:14-15 (NKJV)
