Never alone, no, never alone,
Jesus is with me, Jesus my own;
Cheered by His presence, led by His hand,
Joyous I march thro’ this desert land.


Never alone, no, never alone,
Jesus is with me, Jesus my own,
O what a comfort daily I know,
Jesus is with me where’er I go.

Never alone, when danger is near,
Walking with Jesus, why should I fear?
Trusting in Him when pressed by the foe,
I find a refuge from all my woe.


Never alone, when tempted and tried,
Safely He keeps me close to His side;
Leaning on Jesus, Savior divine,
Claiming His promise, victory is mine.


Never alone, when death shadows come,
O’er weary eyelids closing in sleep;
Sweetly with Jesus, when night is o’er,
I shall awake on yonder bright shore.
