Never Fails Nor Forsakes

"The LORD thy God… will not fail thee, nor forsake thee" (Deuteronomy 31:6).  "Who hath gathered the wind in His fists?  Who hath bound the waters in a garment?... He is a Shield unto them that put their trust in Him" (Proverbs 30:4,5).  "Master, carest Thou not that we perish?  And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still.  And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.  And He said unto them, Why are ye so fearful?  How is it that ye have no faith?" (Mark 4:38-40). 

God never fails nor forsakes
The souls that He forever saves. 
At His command the storm awakes,
And by His word He stills the waves. 

When trials come into our life
With dangers on the battlefield,  
He is our Refuge in the strife;  
He is our Fortress and our Shield.

If not for Christ, we would have perished,
And every cause for hope would cease. 
Because we are so greatly cherished,
He is our Confidence and Peace. 

O Lord, if doubts in us prevail
When we are foolishly mistaken,
Remind us that You never fail,
Nor shall we ever be forsaken.
