Though Friends May All Forsake


Tho’ friends may all forsake thee,
The world be voice of cheer,
Christ’s smile thy heart will brighten,
And drive away thy fear;
He’ll fill thy soul with courage
When earthly hopes are gone,
He’ll be thy friend forever,
And never will leave thee alone.

Chorus:
No, never alone,
No, never alone;
The Savior never will leave thee,
He claims thee for His own;
No, never alone,
No, never alone;
The Savior never will leave thee,
He never will leave thee alone.

Discouraged in the conflict,
Heart-sick with pain and loss,
Crushed low beneath life’s burden,
And groaning ‘neath the cross;
With griefs that must be hidden
While struggling bravely on;
The Savior knows thy sorrow,
And He will not leave thee alone. [Chorus]

That thou may’st dwell in glory,
He suffered grief and shame;
That thou may’st live forever,
To bleed and die he came;
He gave himself on Calv’ry
For all thy sins t’atone;
He’ll guide thee safe to heaven,
And never will leave thee alone. [Chorus]
