1. You are with us in our times of pain and woe.
Through our trials, You teach us how to grow.
Giving strength, Your love, that we may know:
That we're not alone; You're with us as we go.
Lord, my Redeemer, how I long for You!
Lord, my Sustainer, You are always true, always true.
2. Though I err, You stay by me.
From my sin, Lord, through Your death, You set me free.
Though Your life— Your Word— You helped me see.
How to live, and all that I can do and be.
3. Sometimes folks are hateful and unkind.
Lashing out comes promptly to my mind.
But You teach us differently, my Lord.
"Always love, and know that Love is Your reward."
