« Prev Go not far from me, O my Strength Next »


A. L. Waring


Go not far from me, O my Strength,

Whom all my times obey;

Take from me anything Thou wilt,

But go not Thou away;

And let the storm that does Thy work

Deal with me as it may.

On Thy compassion I repose,

In weakness and distress;

I will not ask for greater ease,

Lest I should love Thee less;

O 'tis a blesséd thing for me

To need Thy tenderness!

There is no death for me to fear,

For CHRIST, my LORD, hath died;

There is no curse in this my pain,

For He was crucified;

And it is fellowship with Him

That keeps me near His side.
