Never Let Me Go

Home » Original Songs » Modern Hymns


This is a simple song which attempts to lead us to Jesus as a child - weak, needy, and often fearful. Sometimes we need to sing dense, theologically rich hymns, and sometimes we just need to tell the Lord that we're lonely and that we need him to be our friend. As we listen to or sing this song may we remember that Jesus is a friend, protector, rescuer, hand-holder, guide, covering, treasure, and welcomer to all who will believe in Him.


Verse 1:
When I'm lonely and have no one,
Jesus, be my friend.
When I'm fearful and in danger,
Jesus, be my shield.

Verse 2:
When I've wandered and can't find you,
Jesus, be my guide.
When I've hurt you and shame surrounds me,
Jesus, cover me.

Jesus, Jesus,
Come and take my hand
And hold me close;
Never let me go.

Verse 3:
When I'm fainting and exhausted,
Jesus, be my strength.
When I'm ruined and have nothing,
Jesus, be my prize.

Verse 4:
When I'm sinking into darkness,
Jesus, be my rock.
When I'm finished and life is slipping,
Jesus, welcome me.
