Representative Text

1 Dark clouds may often hide the goal,
But fear will never sway my soul;
For He who bled to make me whole,
Will never let go my hand.

Refrain:
He’ll never let go my hand,
Secure in His love I stand;
This wonderful Friend will be true to the end,
He’ll never let go my hand.

2 He loves my soul, and knows the way,
And my great need of Him each day;
And, lest from His dear side I stray,
He’ll never let go my hand. [Refrain]

3 That I to Him may faithful prove,
He overflows my soul with love
And tells me of my home above;
He’ll never let go my hand. [Refrain]

4 I’ve proved my Saviour o’er and o’er,
Each day I love and praise Him more;
And, till I’m safe on heaven’s shore,
He’ll never let go my hand. [Refrain]
