I came to Jesus sick of sin, He did not fail me then; He made me new without, within, And did not fail me then. I came the second time to Him, For cleansing from the inbred sin, He satisfied my longing then, He will not fail me now.
Refrain: He stilled the storm and calmed my fears, Forgave my sins and dried my tears; He is the same through endless years, He will not fail me now.
When Satan tried to draw me back, Christ did not fail me then, But kept me on the upward track, And did not fail me then. While Satan tried his worst to do, My Lord was by my side, I knew; He answered prayer and took me through— He will not fail me now.
When in affliction, grief, and pain, He did not fail me then; When no one cared, I came to Him; He did not fail me then. I trusted Him for keeping grace, To walk the path His hand did trace, And said while looking on His face, “He will not fail me now.”
When Abraham obeyed the Lord, He did not fail him then, And others faced the fire and sword; He did not fail them then. Lean hard on Him, O tested soul, On Him thy care and burden roll; Our God still lives and has control— He will not fail you now.
