Representative Text

1 Tho’ in this world of sin and woe,
I never will leave my Saviour;
Tho’ stormy winds around may blow,
I never will leave my Saviour.

Refrain:
I never will leave my Saviour,
I never will leave my Saviour;
On Calvary he ransomed me,
My precious, precious Saviour.

2 Let friends prove false, let friends prove true,
I never will leave my Saviour;
No matter what I may pass thro’,
I never will leave my Saviour. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ worldly pleasure bids me stay,
I never will leave my Saviour;
From all its smiles I’ll turn away,
I never will leave my Saviour. [Refrain]

4 Let fears appall, let doubts assail,
I never will leave my Saviour;
My anchor holds within the veil,
I never will leave my Saviour. [Refrain]
