    I have a Friend who is ever nigh
    Whether I sleep or wake;
    Ever He guards with a watchful eye,
    He knoweth the way that I take.

    He knoweth the way that I take.

    He knoweth the way that I take.

    Until the shadows break,
    Leading me on, till my crown is won,
    He knoweth the way that I take,

    He knoweth the way that I take,
    And keeps me when asleep or awake;
    And lead me for His own name's sake,
    He knoweth the way that I take.
