I cannot do it alone--the waves run fast and high, And the fogs close chill around, The light goes out in the sky, but I know that we two shall win in the end, Jesus and I. Coward and wayward and weak, I change with the changing sky, Today so safe and brave, tomorrow to weak to try--But he never gives in, so we two shall win--Jesus and I.
