With His Help
By Vera G. Mosher
When, through the vale of tears and tribulation
Saddened of heart, I travelled wearily
Heavily burdened, lonely and forsaken
No human friends to help or comfort me.
Ah! but I found the Lord my God was with me,
For it was He who eased my heavy load,
He took my hand, He trod the path beside me,
And with His help I walked that lonely road.
Be with me Lord, as on life's various pathways
I daily tread, in tears, in joy or pain.
Let not my faith desert me nor forsake me,
Be every trial for my soul's good gain.
Someday, dear Lord, this vale of tears will vanish,
And I shall walk Thy Kingdom's peaceful ways,
Until that time, 0 Lord wilt Thou be with me
Constant companion for me all my days.
