about

The original hymn used images of a sea voyage. We rewrote the lyrics to resonate with our city surroundings.

lyrics

Above me hangs the silent sky;
Around this city sleeps;
These streets are all at rest, and I
Am, Lord, alone with Thee.

Go where I may, from all remote,
Thou, Lord, art ever near:
No secret thought,that You can’t know;
No word, that You can’t hear.

When all around are deep in sleep,
Thy presence here I find;
Through darkest night my soul you keep,
And watch my troubled mind.

In winds, through rain, and stormy sky;
I see Thee present here;
And, looking at myself, I cry,
Am I still in Thy care?

The sense of all I’ve been and done
Would fill me with despair
But to my Saviour’s arms I run,
And find my refuge there.

Lord, arm my soul with faith in Thee,
And fill my heart again,
And grant me here communion sweet
With Thee, the sinner’s friend.
And grant me here communion sweet
With Thee, the sinner’s friend
