1 I will not go where I cannot take Jesus,
Jesus my Savior, my Friend and Guide,
For I should tremble to feel for one moment
That He was absent from my side.
Stay with me, Savior, Keep me, I pray;
Never a moment let me stray,
Help me more often Thy love to remember,
That I may live closer, closer to Thee.
2 I will not do what I know would grieve Jesus,
How could I spurn such a Friend as He?
No! for a lifetime of tenderest devotion
Cannot repay His love to me. [Refrain]
3 I’ll not believe what I cannot tell Jesus,
Nor will I think upon things untrue;
For in the light or the darkness He surely
Knoweth all things we think or do. [Refrain]
4 I’ll do whatever I know will please Jesus,
I will be faithful in ev’rything;
Yes, by the help and the grace that He gives me,
I will be loyal to my King. [Refrain]Source: Triumphant Songs No.5 #31
