O pilgrim bound for the heav’nly land,
Never lose sight of Jesus;
He’ll lead you gently with loving hand,
Never lose sight of Jesus.

Refrain

Never lose sight of Jesus,
Never lose sight of Jesus;
Day and night He will lead you right,
Never lose sight of Jesus.

Whene’er you’re tempted to go astray,
Never lose sight of Jesus;
Press onward, upward the narrow way,
Never lose sight of Jesus.

Refrain

Tho’ dark the pathway may seem ahead,
Never lose sight of Jesus;
I will be with you His word hath said,
Never lose sight of Jesus.

Refrain

When death is knocking outside the door,
Never lose sight of Jesus;
Till safely landed on Canaan’s shore
Never lose sight of Jesus.

Refrain
