I WILL NEVER ABANDON YOU
(Isaiah 49:14–16) by Greg Mailloux
1. I am the God who loves you
More than you will ever know.
I created you to love you
And in love I'll watch you grow.
In My image I conceived you,
And planted deep within your heart
All the love that you could long for.
Know that I will not depart.
2. Tenderness. Compassion.
These gifts I long to give.
Could a father leave his children?
Could a mother not forgive?
Yet, should these fail to love you,
Know that I am always here.
I will never abandon you;
In my hands I hold you near.
3. And now I prove for you child
How great My love can be.
My Son I sent to love you;
He died so you'd be free;
Free from sin and fear and hatred;
Free to cling to all my love,
So that when you die you'll see Me,
And rejoice in heaven above.
