1 “Lo! I am with you alway,”
I hear the Savior say;
To save, and guide and keep me
Thro’ all my pilgrim way;
Be strong, my heart, and journey,
With ceaseless vigor, on,
And hearken to His promise,
I never will leave thee alone.”

Refrain:
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He’s promised to be with me,
He never will leave me alone;
No, never alone,
No, never alone,
He’s promised to be with me,
He never will leave me alone;

2 When fiercely storms are raging,
On Him I call in pray’r,
He folds His arms around me
And guards with tend’rest care;
He lightens up my pathway
With flashes from His throne,
And speaks above the tempest,
I never will leave thee alone.” [Refrain]

3 When skies above are shining,
And ev’rything is bright;
When peace is “like a river,”
All tending to delight;
When in the “silent watches,”
When dearest friends are gone;
In shade and shine He whispers,
I never will leave thee alone.” [Refrain]

4 “Lo I am with you alway,”
I hear the Savior say,
And hearing, gladly travel
And trust Him day by day;
When in the heav’nly mansions
Prepared for all His own,
He’ll verify His promise,
I never will leave thee alone.” [Refrain]

In 809 he was again banished, for the old cause, refusal to acknowledge the legitimacy of Constantine's marriage. Recalled once more in 811, he was imprisoned and again banished for his defence of the Icons, under Leo the Armenian.
