I’ll Never Go Back – Hymn

0

I once was in bondage in Egypt’s dark night,
But Jesus has brought me out into the light;
He banished my sins and has made my heart right;
I’ll never go back, I’ll never go back.
I’ll never go back to the bondage of sin,
I’ll never go back to the place I was in,
A crown of rejoicing I’m striving to win;
I’ll never go back again.

From sin and its follies I knew I must part
If Jesus were ever to reign in my heart;
So, turning from evil, I hastened to start;
I’ll never go back, I’ll never go back.
I’ll never go back to the world and its ways,
Its pride and its fashions, nor seek for its praise;
I’ll give to my Savior my strength and my days,
I’ll never go back again.

From Babel confusion most gladly I fled,
And came to the heights of fair Zion instead;
I’m feasting this moment on heavenly bread;
I’ll never go back, I’ll never go back.
The beast and his image, his mark, and his name,
My love or allegiance no longer can claim,
Though men may exalt them to honor and fame;
I’ll never go back again.

The church that was built when the Pentecost came,
The church that is kept in one faith and one name,
Shall shine on resplendent, forever the same;
I’ll never go back, I’ll never go back.
I’ll never go back to division and strife,
Where hatred and envy and malice are rife;
I’ll walk in the truth all the days of my life;
I’ll never go back again.
