Be with Me Lord

 

 

 

Words: T. O. Chisholm
Music:  L. O. Sanderson

Be with me, Lord–I cannot live without Thee,
I dare not try to take one step alone.
I cannot bear the loads of life, unaided,
I need Thy strength to lean myself upon.

Be with me, Lord, and then if dangers threaten,
If storms of trial burst above my head,
If lashing seas leap everywhere about me,
They cannot harm, or make my heart afraid.

Be with me, Lord! No other gift or blessing
Thou couldst bestow could with this one compare—
A constant sense of Thy abiding presence,
Where e’er I am, to feel that Thou art near.

Be with me Lord, when loneliness o’er-takes me,
When I must weep amid the fires of pain,
And when shall come the hour of “my departure”
For “worlds unknown,” O Lord, be with me then.

    Does anyone know where to find the sheet music for this song?

    • Joe Burkhalter says:

      Go to your local Church of Christ and look in their hymnal. There probably isn’t any typical sheet music for this song if you’re looking for an accompaniment piece.

  2. OUR SONG LEADER DIED. AS A CONGREGATION OF 11, I HAVE TO LEAD SINGING. I USE THIS WEB SITE TO LEARN THE TUNE. I THANK YOU. MY THE LORD BLESS YOU WITH THE WISDOM OF HIS KNOWLEDGE. WAYNE
