1 There’s no disappointment in Jesus,
On Him I can ever rely;
With confidence wait His appointment,
Tho’ sometimes my faith He may try.

Refrain:
There’s no disappointment in Jesus,
O no, O no,
For if He says go, why, then I will go,
And if He says stay, I will stay;
There’s no disappointment in Jesus,
O no, O no,
Change disappointment to His appointment,
And trust alway.

2 Earth’s friends may all fail when I need them,
The testing-time proves them untrue;
But Christ is a Friend e’er unfailing,
I’ll trust Him to carry me through. [Refrain]

3 There’s no disappointment in Jesus,
In faith to His footstool I go;
With Him leave my heartaches and sorrows,
My pray’rs He will answer I know. [Refrain]
