Lyrics

Jesus is mine, He never will forsake me;
Jesus is mine, no evil can o’ertake me;
I seek His kindly face,
I trust Him for His grace;
O no, He never will forsake me.
No, no, no, He never will forsake me;
No, no, no, no evil can o’ertake me;
His love will ever last,
Till all of earth is past;
O no, He never will forsake me.

Jesus is mine, He never will deceive me;
Jesus is mine, His words shall never grieve me;
I know His love is true,
And what He says, He’ll do;
O no, He never will deceive me.
No, no, no, He never will deceive me;
No, no, no, His words shall never grieve me;
I know His love is true,
And what He says, He’ll do;
O no, He never will deceive me.

Jesus is mine, He never will desert me;
Jesus is mine, no grief can ever hurt me;
For on His throbbing breast
I can most sweetly rest;
O no, He never will desert me.
No, no, no, He never will desert me;
No, no, no, no grief can ever hurt me;
For on His throbbing breast
I can most sweetly rest;
O no, He never will desert me.

Jesus is mine, He never will reject me;
Jesus is mine, His blood will e’er protect me;
And when before the throne,
I shall not stand alone,
O no, He never will reject me.
No, no, no, He never will reject me;
No, no, no, His blood will e’er protect me;
And when before His throne,
I shall not stand alone;
No, no, He never will reject me.
