Verse 1
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.

Chorus
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.

Verse 2
I have a Friend who is always near
One who will ne'er forsake;
What though my pathway be dark and drear,
He knoweth the way that I take.

Chorus
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.

Verse 3
I have a Friend who will guide me on
Until the shadows break,
Leading me on, till my crown is won,
He knoweth the way that I take,

Chorus
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.
