My Lord and I

My Lord and I

I have a friend so precious,

So very dear to me;

He loves me with such tender love,

He loves so faithfully.

 

I could not live apart from Him,

I love to feel Him nigh;

And so we dwell together,

My Lord and I.

 

Sometimes I’m faint and weary,

He knows that I am weak,

And so He bids me lean on Him,

His help I gladly seek.

 

He leads me in the paths of light,

Beneath a summer sky,

And so we walk together,

My Lord and I.

 

He knows how much I love Him,

He knows I love Him well,

But with what love He loveth me,

My tongue can never tell.

 

It is an everlasting love,

An ever rich supply,

And so we love each other,

My Lord and I.

 

I tell Him all my sorrows,

I tell Him all my joys,

I tell Him all that pleases me,

I tell Him what annoys.

 

He tells me what I ought to do,

He tells me what to try,

And so we walk together,

My Lord and I.
