Never Alone Misc. Gospel
[G]How many times discouraged, we [C]sink beside the [G]way;
About us all is [D7]darkness, we hardly dare to [G]pray;
Then from the mists and shadows, the [C]sweetest voice e'er [G]known,
Say, "Child, am I not [D7]with thee, never to leave thee a-[G]lone?"
[G]No, never alone! [C]No never a-[G]lone!
He [D7]promised never to leave me;
He'll claim me for His [G]own.
No, never alone! [C]No never a-[G]lone!
He [D7]promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me a-[G]lone!
O soul, hast thou forgotten, the tender word and sweet,
Of Him Who left behind Him the print of bleeding feet?
"I never will forsake thee, O child so weary grown;
Remember, I have promised, never to leave thee alone."
Take courage, wayworn pilgrim, tho' mists and shadows hide
The face of Him thou lovest, He's ever at thy side;
Reach out thy hand and find Him, and lo, the clouds have flown;
He smiles on thee Who promised, never to leave thee alone.
