#292: Surely Goodness and Mercy (Late post for Wednesday)

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

A pilgrim was I, and a wand’ring,

In the cold night of sin I did roam,

When Jesus the kind Shepherd found me,

And now I am on my way home.

CHORUS

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days, all the days of my life;

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days, all the days of my life.

(add to final chorus)

And I shall swell in the house of the Lord forever,

And I shall feast at the table spread for me;

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days, all the days of my life,

All the days of my life.

2

He restoreth my soul when I’m weary,

He giveth me strength day by day;

He leads me beside the still waters,

He guards me each step of the way.

CHORUS

3

When I walk thru the dark lonesome valley,

My Savior will walk with me there;

And safely His great hand will lead me

To the mansions He’s gone to prepare.

CHORUS
