I’ve seen the lightning flashing

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.
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.
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.
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 just had a dream. I was about to be killed by some Islamic terrorists and they had me and my family lined up. They took me from the line to have me beheaded because I am a pastor. I was happy to be executed in my dream. The joy I had was unusual. I knew I was about to die for a worthy cause. I proclaimed Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the way; a proclamation which angered the terrorists. One of the terrorists pulled out a knife (military like) and chanted in arabic like they do in movies and was about to have me beheaded but the words of this hymn started to come out of my mouth. I started singing, "I have seen the lightning flashing, I have heard the thunder roll. I felt sins breakers dashing trying to conquer my soul but I heard the voice of Jesus bidding me to fight on, He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone". While singing this hymn, a power that I have not experienced before came upon me and I started to fight the terrorists who were about to have me slaughtered. My brother joined in and we over powered these terrorists who were about to behead me and later execute my family. There is power in the words of this hymn. God moved and defended my family as I sang this hymn. To God be the glory. Jesus Christ of Nazareth is Lord.

This song has been a comforting assurance to me just to think that Jesus has promised never to leave me alone. I live in that assurance and claim victory every day because with Him by my side nothing can conquer me.
