His Love Can Never Fail


I do not ask to see the way

My feet will have to tread;

But only that my soul may feed

Upon the living Bread.

’Tis better far that I should walk

By faith close to His side;

I may not know the way I go,

But oh, I know my Guide.

Refrain

His love can never fail,

His love can never fail,

My soul is satisfied to know

His love can never fail.

And if my feet would go astray,

They cannot, for I know

That Jesus guides my falt’ring steps,

As joyfully I go.

And tho’ I may not see His face,

My faith is strong and clear,

That in each hour of sore distress 

My Savior will be near.

Refrain

I will not fear, tho’ darkness come

Abroad o’er all the land,

If I may only feel the touch

Of His own loving hand.

And tho’ I tremble when I think

How weak I am, and frail,

My soul is satisfied to know

His love can never fail.

Refrain
E.S. Hall (1897)
