Just like the prodigal son when he was far from home
He wanted to go back and tell his father he had done wrong
He fell on his knees, the Lord answered his pleas
Sayin', "If you go back home I'll go with thee"

Just like the Israelites who were Pharaoh's slaves
They suffered in bondage and they prayed for days
The Lord said, "Moses, go, set them free
I am the Lord, thy God, and I'll go with thee"

Just like old Joshua at Jericho
The Jericho walls, he wanted to overthrow
The Lord said, "Fight, and I'll give you victory
I am the Lord, thy God, and I'll go with thee"

He said, "I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee
You don't have to worry
I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee"

Through the water, through the flood
Through the fire, through the blood
I am the Lord, thy God
And I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee

I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee
(You may be far away)
I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee

Through failure, success
I'll understand when you done your best
I am the Lord, thy God, and I'll be with thee
I'll be with thee

Just like the Israelites who were Pharaoh's slaves
They suffered in bondage and they prayed for days
The Lord said, "Moses, go, set them free
I am the Lord, thy God, and I'll go with thee"

Just like old Joshua at Jericho
The Jericho walls, he wanted to overthrow
The Lord said, "Fight, and I'll give you victory
I am the Lord, thy God, and I'll be with thee"

He said, I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee
You don't have to worry
I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee

Through the water, through the flood
Through the fire, through the blood
I am the Lord, thy God, and I'll be with thee
I'll be with thee

I'll be with thee, you don't have to worry
I'll be with thee, I'll be with thee
You don't have to be discouraged
I'll be with thee

Through failure, success
I'll understand when you done your best
I am the Lord, thy God, and I'll be with thee
I'll be with thee
