1 My faith temptation shall not move,
For Jesus knows it all,
And holds me with His arm of love—
He will not let me fall.

Chorus:
He will not let me fall,
He will not let me fall,
He is my Strength, my Hope, my all,
He will not let me fall.

2 When grief is more than I can bear—
To weak am I to call—
If I but lift my heart in pray’r,
He will not let me fall. [Chorus]

3 Sometimes I falter, filled with fear,
I cannot see at all,
His voice I never fail to hear—
“I will not let thee fall.” [Chorus]
