Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

He Will Never Let Us Fall

Representative Text

1 I came to Jesus in my sin,
Confessing all my need;
He freely pardoned, took me in,
And now His blood I plead.

He will never, never let us fall;
He will never, never let us fall;
As we trust His pow'r each day and hour,
He will never, never let us fall.

2 Without the knowledge of His word,
I feared, I could not stand;
When some one whispered Christ the Lord,
Will hold you by His hand. [Chorus]

3 I wept and trembled as I knelt
Before the lamb of God;
The Spirit's pow'r I plainly felt,
And cleansing thro' the blood. [Chorus]

4 My time, my will I yield to Him,
My body and my all;
He'll ever keep me pure within,
And never let me fall. [Chorus]
