Verse 1
Jesus, lover of my soul,
Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high;

Hide me, O my Saviour, hide!
Till the storm of life be past;
Safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last!

Verse 2
Other refuge have I none,
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, ah! leave me not alone!
Still support and comfort me;

All my trust on Thee is stayed,
All my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenseless head
With the shadow of Thy wing.

Verse 3
Thou, O Christ, art all I want,
More than all in Thee I find;
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick, and lead the blind.

Just and holy is Thy name,
I am all unrighteousness;
Vile and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.

Verse 4
Plenteous grace with Thee is found
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound,
Make and keep me pure within;

Thou of life the Fountain art,
Freely let me take of Thee;
Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.
