294. Dear Saviour, in Thy Bosom Hide me

1 Dear Saviour, in Thy bosom hide me,
There make the weary wanderer blest;
In all the world there's none beside Thee
To give my soul the longed-for rest.
Dear Jesus, I would come to Thee,
Be Thine throughout eternity.

2 The world to me is dark and dreary:
My evil heart does cause me grief.
Redeemer, I am sad and weary,
Give Thou my troubled soul relief.
Come, precious Jesus, lead Thou me,
And keep me ever near to Thee.

3 With Thee I'm safe from every danger,
But only Lord, when in Thy care:
For here on earth I'm but a stranger,
And prone to fall in every snare.
Thou art the true and living Way,
Blest Jesus, keep me Thine alway.

Amen.
