Close By Us Forever (To the tune Away in a Manger)
1. Lord Jesus, our Saviour, has promised to be…
Close by us forever and guide you and me.
His Spirit within us will help us to know…
That He never leaves us—He cares for us so.
2. Though we cannot see where our pathway will lead
Lord Jesus says follow; I’ll give what you need.
No matter how lonely or anxious you feel—
You’re never alone for my presence is real.
3. I trust you, Lord Jesus, so help me to stay
Close by you forever and thank you each day.
In school, home or working, your promise is true…
Whatever may happen, I’ll always have you!
