I am not Alone Lyrics
When darkening shadow 'round me falls,
And light and hope seem gone,
There is one thought my heart upholds;
It is, I'm not alone.
No, never alone, Jesus' followers be;
He's ever near, why should we fear?
Our guide and hope is He.
His eye can pierce the darkest cloud,
His arm all danger stay;
He waits for neither look nor word,
Our troubles to allay.
When sorrows come with crushing blow,
O'er my defenseless head;
I tremble not, for well I know
Who by my side doth tread.
So, cheerfully I'll travel on
Through life's dark, thorny way;
I'll fear no ill, I'm not alone
While Jesus is my stay.
