Never alone, no, ne­ver alone,
Jesus is with me, Je­sus my own;
Cheered by His pre­sence, led by His hand,
Joyous I march thro’ this de­sert land.


Never alone, no, ne­ver alone,
Jesus is with me, Je­sus my own,
O what a com­fort dai­ly I know,
Jesus is with me wher­e’er I go.

Never alone, when dan­ger is near,
Walking with Je­sus, why should I fear?
Trusting in Him when pressed by the foe,
I find a re­fuge from all my woe.


Never alone, when tempt­ed and tried,
Safely He keeps me close to His side;
Leaning on Je­sus, Sav­ior di­vine,
Claiming His pro­mise, vic­to­ry is mine.


Never alone, when death sha­dows come,
O’er wea­ry eye­lids clos­ing in sleep;
Sweetly with Je­sus, when night is o’er,
I shall awake on yon­der bright shore.
