          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!

            Chorus
            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 though it be my lot to bear my colors there,
          If Jesus goes with me, I'll go anywhere!

            Chorus
            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!

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

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

            Chorus
            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!
