Lyrics

If thro’ the shadows my pathway should lead,
He will not leave me alone,
For I have found in my heart’s deepest need,
He will not leave me alone.

Refrain

He will not leave me alone,
He will not leave me alone;
He is my Savior, Redeemer and friend;
He will not leave me alone.

When I am weary with labor and care,
He will not leave me alone;
He will stand by me my burden to share,
He will not leave me alone.

Refrain

Satan may tempt me to turn from the way,
He will not leave me alone;
But His rich grace will sustain me each day,
He will not leave me alone.

Refrain

So I will trust Him wherever I go,
He will not leave me alone;
He is my Friend, and this one thing I know,
He will not leave me alone.
