Whether I Live Or Die Whether I Wake Or


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.
