The author of these words is unknown. Like so many gospel hymns, it is unabashedly personal. The tune I knew in childhood was more upbeat and positive. One day it occurred to me to put this tune to it. It is a song that has touched many when we did it in concert. I think that is because, in this current world we have created for ourselves, that loneliness is a profound plague, multiplying all of our other challenges.f


Never Alone (6/8 time)

D / / / / / / Bmin /// /// G /// /// D /// ///
The world’s fierce winds are blowing, temptations are sharp and keen
D/ / / / / / Bmin/// /// A /// /// A7 /// ///
I feel a peace in knowin’ my Savior stands between
D /// /// Bmin /// /// G/// /// D/// ///
He stands to shield me from danger, when earthly friends are gone
G/ / / / / / Bmin /// /// A / / / A7 / / / D /// /// /// ///
He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone.

G /// /// D /// Dsus / / / D /// ///
I’ve seen the lightning flashing, and heard the thunder roll
D /// /// Bmin /// /// A /// /// A7 /// ///
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing, trying to conquer my soul;
D/// /// Bmin /// /// G /// /// D /// ///
I’ve heard the voice of Jesus, telling me still to fight on
G /// /// Bmin /// /// A /// /// A7 /// /// D /// ///
He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone.

When in affliction’s valley I’m treading the road of care,
My Savior helps me to carry my cross when heavy to bear
My feet entangled with briars, ready to cast me down;
My Savior whispered his promise, never to leave me alone.


He died for me on the mountain, for me they pierced his side,
For me he opened that fountain, the precious cleansing tide, of life
For me he waiteth in glory, seated upon his throne;
He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone.


Repeat last line.
