408. O Holy Savior

1 O Holy Savior, Friend unseen,
Since on Thine arm Thou bid'st me lean,
Help me, throughout life's changing scene,
By faith to cling to Thee!

2 What though the world deceitful prove,
And earthly friends and joys remove?
With patient, uncomplaining love,
Still would I cling to Thee.

3 Though faith and hope awhile be tried,
I ask not, need not aught beside:
How safe, how calm, how satisfied,
The souls that clings to Thee.
