If Jesus Goes With Me
Refrain  [1]  [2]  [3]  [4] 
Contemporary
If Jesus goes with me,
I'll go anywhere!
'Tis heaven to me,
Where'er I may be,
If He is there!
I count it a privilege here
His cross to bear;
If Jesus goes with me
I'll go anywhere!
It may be in the valley,
Where countless dangers hide;
It may be in the sunshine
That I, in peace abide;
But this one thing I know
If It be dark or fair,
If Jesus is with me,
I'll go anywhere!
It may be I must carry
The blessed Word of Life
Across the burning deserts
To those in sinful strife;
And tho' it be my lot
To bear my colors there,
If Jesus goes with me,
I'll go anywhere!
But if it be my portion
To bear my cross at home,
While others bear their burdens
Beyond the billows foam,
I'll prove my faith in Him,
Confess His judgments fair,
And, if He stays with me,
I'll stay anywhere!
It is not mine to question
The judgments of my Lord;
It is but mine to follow
The leading of His Word;
But if to go or stay,
Or whether here or there,
I'll be, with my Savior,
Content anywhere!

It may be in the valley, where countless dangers hide;
It may be in the sunshine that I, in peace abide;
But this one thing I know if It be dark or fair,
If Jesus is with me, I'll go anywhere!

Refrain
If Jesus goes with me, I'll go anywhere!
'Tis heaven to me, where'er I may be, if He is there!
I count it a privilege here His cross to bear;
If Jesus goes with me I'll go anywhere!

It may be I must carry the blessed Word of Life
Across the burning deserts to those in sinful strife;
And tho' it be my lot to bear my colors there,
If Jesus goes with me, I'll go anywhere!

But if it be my portion to bear my cross at home,
While others bear their burdens beyond the billows foam,
I'll prove my faith in Him, confess His judgments fair,
And, if He stays with me, I'll stay anywhere!

It is not mine to question the judgments of my Lord;
It is but mine to follow the leading of His Word;
But if to go or stay, or whether here or there,
I'll be, with my Savior, content anywhere!
