One is never alone in the world,
There is always the Friend that's most dear;
And when Life's roughest banner's unfurled
Then the Greatest of all friends is near.
So you don't face your trials alone,
God loves you and does what s best;
Though it seems you are all on your own,
You can still turn to Him when distressed.
Do not wait till you think it the end,
Go to Him at least once every day;
He'll become the most genuine Friend,
And He'll guide you along your rough way.
So in prayer may you ever be true;
May He never be cause for your shame,
He'll never be ashamed of you,
So then make faithful praying your aim.
And when all of Life's trials are o'er,
And the things are broken you've done,
Upon death you'll rejoice ever-more
For in truth you've in every way won.
