Representative Text

1 Earthly friends may prove untrue,
Doubts and fears assail;
One still loves and cares for you:
Jesus never fails.

Jesus never fails,
Jesus never fails;
Heav'n and earth may pass away,
But Jesus never fails.

2 Though the sky be dark and drear,
Fierce and strong the gale,
Just remember He is near,
And He will not fail. (Refrain)

3 In life's dark and bitter hour
Love will still prevail;
Trust His everlasting pow'r,
Jesus will not fail. (Refrain)
