1 "I will fail thee never;" blessed words of cheer,
Like a blaze of glory, shining far and near;
Tho' the storm and tempest all around may shake,
Jesus, my Saviour, has promised that he will never forsake.

Chorus:
No, he'll never forsake,
No, he'll never forsake;
Dangers arouse me may threaten,
Jesus will never forsake.
No, he'll never forsake,
No, he'll never forsake;
Dangers around me may threaten
Jesus will never forsake.

2 "I will fail thee never;" tho' the night be long;
Soon the morning cometh with its light and song;
Precious words of comfort to my heart I take;
Jesus, my Saviour, has promised that he will never forsake. [Chorus]

3 "I will fail thee never;" brightest flow'rs will fade,
But my trust in Jesus ne'er shall be betrayed;
Midnight all around me, soon his light will break,
Jesus, my Saviour, has promised that he will never forsake. [Chorus]

4 "I will fail thee never;" fails the earth and sky,
But his bow of promise shineth still on high;
Earthly sunbeams vanish, and my heart may quake,
Jesus, my Saviour, has promised that he will never forsake. [Chorus]

3 "I will fail thee never;" brightest flow'rs will fade,
But my trust in Jesus ne'er shall be betrayed;
Midnight all around me, soon his light will break,
Jesus, my Saviour, has promised that he will never forsake. [Chorus]

4 "I will fail thee never;" fails the earth and sky,
But his bow of promise shineth still on high;
Earthly sunbeams vanish, and my heart may quake,
Jesus, my Saviour, has promised that he will never forsake. [Chorus]
