Representative Text

1 Savior, my life, my all,
Thou wilt not leave me;
Ready to hear my call,
Thou wilt not leave me.
Thy loving voice I heard,
This precious promised word,
Sweetly my heart is stirred,
Thou wilt not leave me.

2 Tho’ other friends should fail,
Thou wilt not leave me;
Grace shall “much more” prevail,
Thou wilt not leave me.
“Thou hast a mighty arm,”
Shielding my soul from harm;
Hush thou each wild alarm,
Thou wilt not leave me.

3 Joy cometh from the throne,
Thou wilt not leave me;
Wand’ring no more alone,
Thou wilt not leave me.
O, may I rest in thee,
Trustful, obedient be,
Then, Lord, thy face I’ll see,
Thou wilt not leave me.
