Representative Text

1 While thro’ this world of sin I go,
I’ll center my faith in Jesus;
I’ll trust in Him for well I know,
He’ll never forsake His own.

Chorus:
He’ll never forsake His own,
He’ll never forsake His own;
With Him I’ll go, for well I know,
He’ll never forsake His own.

2 Tho’ friends may fail, and comforts flee,
I’ll center my faith in Jesus;
His promise shall my comfort be,
He’ll never forsake His own. [Chorus]

3 For me He trod Gethsemane,
I’ll center my faith in Jesus;
For me He died on Calvary,
He’ll never forsake His own. [Chorus]

4 Tho’ kindred ties of hope decay,
I’ll center my faith in Jesus;
Tho’ heav’n and earth should pass away.
He’ll never forsake His own. [Chorus]

5 When in the solemn hour of death,
I’ll center my faith in Jesus;
And say with my expiring breath,
He’ll never forsake His own. [Chorus]

6 And when I reach my home on high,
I’ll center my faith in Jesus;
And sing while endless years go by,
He’ll never forsake His own. [Chorus]
