122. Never Alone

1 Lonely? no, not lonely
While Jesus standeth by;
His presence always cheers me;
I know that he is nigh.
Friendless? no, not friendless,
For Jesus is my Friend;
I change, but he remaineth
The same unto the end.

Refrain:
No, never alone, no, never alone;
He has promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone;
No, never alone, no, never alone;
He has promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

2 Weary? no, not weary
While leaning on his breast;
My soul hath full enjoyment,
‘Tis his eternal rest.
Helpless? yes, so helpless;
But I am leaning hard
On the mighty arm of Jesus,
And he is keeping guard. [Refrain]

3 Waiting? O yes, waiting;
He bade me watch and wait;
I only wonder often,
What makes my Lord so late.
Joyful? yes, so joyful;
With joy too deep for words;
A precious, sure foundation,
The joy that is my Lord’s. [Refrain]
