Whether I live or die, Whether I wake or sleep, Whether upon the land, Or on the stormy deep; When ’tis serene and calm, Or when the wild winds blow, I shall not be afraid— I am the Lord’s, I know.
When with abundant store, Or in deep poverty, When all the world may smile, Or it may frown on me; When it shall help me on, Or shall obstruct my way, Still shall my heart rejoice— I am the Lord’s today.
When I am safe at home, Or in a foreign land, When on an icebound shore, Or on a sunlit strand; When on the mountain height, Or in the valley low, Still doth He care for me— I am the Lord’s, I know.
Nothing shall separate From His unbounded love, Neither in depths below, Nor in the heights above; And in the years to come, He will abide with me; I am the Lord’s indeed, For all eternity.
The Gospel Trumpet Company, Hymnal of the Church of God, 1953 (324)
