Though Friends May Deceive Me And Troubl


Tho’ friends may deceive me and troubles draw night,
Tho’ dark clouds may gather above in the sky;
When lying before me the pathway looks dim,
I can never fear, if I keep close to Him.

Refrain:
Close to Jesus thro’ the night and day,
Close to Jesus all along the way;
What tho’ the heavens above me look dim,
I am safe and happy if I keep close to Him.

In ev’ry temptation I know He is near,
With words of compassion to comfort and cheer;
He sets a bright rain before me the pathway looks dim,
And sustaining grace, if I keep close to Him. [Refrain]

In sunshine and shower by me doth He stand,
Each day I am under His sheltering hand;
My cup of rejoicing He fills to the brim,
Giving me a song, if I keep close to Him. [Refrain]
