Though The Way Be Dark Yet The Lord Hath


Tho’ the way be dark, yet the Lord hath said,
He never will forsake;
He never will forsake;
And the soul is safe that to Him hath fled,
He never will forsake His own.

Refrain:
Praise His holy name, I am sav’d from fear,
He never will forsake;
He never will forsake;
I am walking now with my Lord so dear,
He never will forsake His own.

When our foes are strong and our friends deceive,
He never will forsake;
He never will forsake;
While we trust His word needed grace He’ll give,
He never will forsake His own. [Refrain]

When the tempter comes like a singing tide,
He never will forsake;
He never will forsake;
We a shelter have in His wounded side,
He never will forsake His own. [Refrain]

When in sorrow great human friends must part,
He never will forsake;
He never will forsake;
He will nearer come to the trusting heart,
He never will forsake His own. [Refrain]

When we bid farewell to the earth below,
He never will forsake;
He never will forsake;
Thro’ the stream of death by our side He’ll go,
He never will forsake His own. [Refrain]
