Lyrics

Fear not, I am with thee;
Blessèd golden ray,
Like a star of glo­ry,
Lighting up my way!
Through the clouds of midnight,
This bright promise shone,
I will ne­ver leave thee,
Never will leave thee alone.

Refrain

No, ne­ver alone,
No, ne­ver alone,
He promised ne­ver to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.
No, ne­ver alone,
No, ne­ver alone,
He promised ne­ver to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.

Roses fade around me,
Lilies bloom and die,
Earthly sunbeams vanish—
Radiant still the sky!
Jesus, Rose of Sharon,
Blooming for His own,
Jesus, Hea­ven’s sunshine,
Never will leave me alone.

Refrain

Steps unseen before me,
Hidden dangers near;
Nearer still my Sav­ior,
Whispering, be of cheer;
Joy like birds of springtime,
To my heart have flown,
Singing all so sweetly,
He will not leave me alone.
