Never Alone

Representative Text

1 I’ve seen the lightning flashing,
And heard the thunder roll,
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul;
I’ve heard the voice of Jesus
Telling me still to fight on:
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

Refrain:
No, never alone,
No, never alone -
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone;
No, never alone,
No, never alone -
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

2 The world’s fierce winds are blowing -
Temptation’s sharp and keen;
I have a peace in knowing
My Savior stands between;
He stands to shield me from danger
When all my friends are gone:
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone. [Refrain]

3 When in affliction’s valley
I tread the road of care,
My Savior helps me to carry
My cross so heavy to bear;
Though all around me is darkness
And earthly joys are flown,
My Savior whispers His promise:
Never to leave me alone. [Refrain]

4 He died on Calv'ry's mountain,
For me they pierced His side,
For me He opened that fountain,
The crimson, cleansing tide;
For me He’s waiting in glory,
Upon His heavenly throne:
He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
