In all the changing scenes of life;
In times of peace; in times of strife,

In all the changing scenes of life;
In times of peace; in times of strife,
There’s One who watches over me,
And what no other notices,
           His eye can see.

As deep as my self-knowledge goes,
And deeper still, He sees and knows,
And when I have a thing to share,
But no one seems to understand,
           My God is there.

My God is there to see and hear. —
In every lonely trial He’s near,
And near when victory I gain,
Which, though it thrills my inmost soul,
           I can’t explain.

When words just can’t express my heart —
Too full — or too much torn apart —
Or plagued by thoughts against my will,
My God and Father knows it all —
           And loves me still.
