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 hate the lightnng following me with a passion. It senses the moment I feel peace and flashes again. I wish the person with the control on the lightning would come down here and try to ruin my life to my face. He would never do it again cause I would make sure he stays in Hell this time. so many people wil be so glad when your God is dead. the first time we had peace in decades!

I love this song from way back when. I was laying on the bed and it just popped in my mind. I tried singing it and couldn't remember all of the words. Thank God for Google!

I went to bed a little worried over some academic task, just swippered a few words of prayer before sleeping off. Only to wake up this morning with this song bursting out of my mouth. I practically woke up singing it. Nothing feels as reassuring as this. God has promised to never leave me alone. I hold him to those words and also ask that he help me not to also leave him. What a song!


I saw the lighting flash, I heard the thunder roll, I felt breakers crashing... swamping my soul.

And I fell down on my knees and cried MY GOD!!! WHY has thou forsaken me??

He said, Joe, you are no Earthly good if you don't take this opportunity to teach these gentlemen the truth.... and he didn't say, 'Joe... be polite! '

A comforting promise from our Lord. Such reassurance to my soul knowing his promise to me never to leave me alone. Thank you Jesus.

I am reminded of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr reciting this hymn in one of his sermons. In 2021 we need to know that Jesus is with us and He promises NEVER to leave us, NEVER to leave us alone. ☝🙏🙌
