The Lord is my constant companion.

There is no need that He cannot fulfill.

Whether His course for me points

to the mountaintops of glorious ecstasy

or to the valleys of human suffering,

He is by my side,

He is ever present with me.

He is close beside me

when I tread the dark streets of danger,

and even when I flirt with death itself.

He will not leave me.

When the pain is severe,

He is near to comfort.

When the burden is heavy,

He is there to lean upon.

When depression darkens my soul,

He touches me with eternal joy.

When I feel empty and alone,

He fills the aching vacuum with His power.

My security is in His promise

to be near me always,

and in the knowledge

that He will never let me go.
