LYRICS

When the road is long and hard,
when I do not know the way.
When I’m cold and look for comfort,
at the closing of the day.
When I need a hand to guide me,
a strength that will not fail,
my friend, my friend,
is standing close to me.

Words by Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
Melody ‘O Waly, Waly’ Trad.
Arrangement by McLeish, Boyce & Stanley
