365. Jesus, I Will Never Leave

1 Jesus I will never leave,
Who for me Himself hath given;
Firmly unto Him I'll cleave
Nor from Him be ever driven.
Life from Him doth light receive,--
Jesus I will never leave.

2 Jesus I will never leave
While on earth I am abiding;
What I have to Him I give,
In all cares in Him confiding.
Naught shall me of Him bereave,--
Jesus I will never leave.

3 Tho' my sight shall pass away,
Hearing, taste, and feeling fail me;
Tho' my life's last light of day
Shall o'ertake and sore assail me;
When His summons I receive,
Jesus I will never leave.

4 Nor will I my Jesus leave
When at last I shall come thither
Where His saints He will receive,
Where is bliss they live together.
Endless joy to me He'll give,--
Jesus I will never leave.

5 Nor for earth's vain joys I crave
Nor, without Him, heaven's pleasure;
Jesus, who my soul did save,
Evermore shall be my Treasure.
He redemption did achieve,--
Jesus I will never leave.

Amen.
