1 My Father will not let me fall!
His strong and loving arms enfold me;
To Him I trust my life, my all,
And know that He will safely hold me.

Just as he promised, promised to do,
When first to Him I trembling came;
Now I have trusted, proven Him true,
Hallelujah to His name!

2 My Savior will not let me stray!
The path He trod is plain before me;
And He who said, "I am the Way"
Is watching, ever watching o’er me. [Refrain]

3 I trust Him as a little child,
Content beneath His wings to hide me;
Tho’ all around is rough and wild,
He walks the path of peace beside me. [Refrain]

4 His love will still remember me
In life, in death, in joy, in sorrow;
Whate’er betide, He still will be
My guide today, my hope tomorrow. [Refrain]
