1 Since I gave to Jesus
My poor broken heart,
He never has left me alone;
Since I for the homeland
Eternal did start,
He never has left me alone.

Refrain:
He never has left me alone,
No, He never has left me alone;
By night and by day
He is with me alway,
He never has left me alone.

2 Tho’ winding and heavy
The road may appear,
He never has left me alone;
The day may be dismal,
The night may be drear,
He never has left me alone. [Refrain]

3 When sorrow has taken
My heart by surprise,
He never has left me alone;
In tenderness wiping
The tears from mine eyes,
He never has left me alone. [Refrain]

4 I’ll tell the whole world
As the valley I roam,
He never has left me alone;
I’ll tell it through Heaven
When I shall reach home,
He never has left me alone; [Refrain]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
