I’ve seen the lightning flashing

1
I’ve seen the lightning flashing,
  And heard the thunder roll;
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
  Trying to conquer my soul;
I’ve heard the voice of Jesus,
  Telling me still to fight on;
He promised never to leave me,
  Never to leave me alone.
  No, never alone,
  No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
  Never to leave me alone;
No, never alone,
  No, never alone,
He promised never to leave me,
    Never to leave me alone.
2
The world’s fierce winds are blowing,
  Temptations are sharp and keen;
I feel a peace in knowing
  My Savior stands between;
He stands to shield me from danger,
  When earthly friends are gone,
He promised never to leave me,
  Never to leave me alone.
3
When in affliction’s valley,
  I’m treading the road of care,
My Savior helps me to carry
  My cross when heavy to bear;
My feet entangled with briars,
  Ready to cast me down;
My Savior whispered His promise,
  Never to leave me alone.
4
He died for me on the mountain,
  For me they pierced His side,
For me He opened that fountain,
  The crimson, cleansing tide;
For me He waiteth in glory,
  Seated upon His throne;
He promised never to leave me,
  Never to leave me alone.

I'm one of ten children, and at the present moment I'm traveling the country with a family from our church. This is the first time I've ever been away from my family for a long period of time, and I cry every morning and night. But singing this song helped bunches!

This is one of my favourite hymns. It gives so much comfort, assurance and encouragement. God is faithful and true and whenever I sing or hear this hymn, the truth of those words are reinforced.

Thank you. This song means so much to me. It was the first song I heard when I was on the plane coming back from my dad's funeral. I was alone.
