Leave me not, for I am lonely,
And the way I cannot see;
Lest I wander into danger,
Keep me, Savior, close to Thee.

Refrain

Savior, Savior,
Keep me near to Thee;
Lest I wander into danger,
Keep me, Savior, near to Thee.

Leave me not, for darkness gathers
Round about the path I tread;
Leave me not, but let my footsteps
Ever by Thy hand be led.

Refrain

Leave me not, for sin is near me;
With temptation life is fraught;
Then through all life’s toilsome journey,
O, my Savior, leave me not.

Refrain
