He abides

Redemption Hymnal no. 217

Herbert Buffum       D M Shanks
4 verses

I’m rejoicing night and day
As I walk the pilgrim way
For the hand of God in all my life I see
And the reason of my bliss
Yes, the secret all is this
That the Comforter abides with me

Refrain
He abides, He abides
Hallelujah, He abides with me
I’m rejoicing night and day
As I walk the narrow way
For the Comforter abides with me

Once my heart was full of sin
Once I had no peace within
Till I heard how Jesus died upon the tree
Then I fell down at His feet
And there came a peace so sweet
Now the Comforter abides with me
Refrain

He is with me ev’rywhere
And He knows my ev’ry care
I’m as happy as a bird and just as free
For the Spirit has control
Jesus satisfies my soul
Since the Comforter abides with me
Refrain

There’s no thirsting for the things
Of the world – they’ve taken wings
Long ago I gave them up, and instantly
All my night was turn’d to day
All my burdens roll’d away
Now the Comforter abides with me
Refrain
