58. Jesus, My Savior

1 Jesus, my Savior,
Keep me ever near Thy side,
Help me to trust Thee,
In Thy love abide;
When the storms assail me,
And the billows ‘round me roll,
In Thy bosom fold me,
Hid my troubled soul.

Jesus, my Savior,
Leave, oh, leave me not alone,
Ever, forever,
Make Thy presence known.

2 Comfort in sorrow,
In affliction be my friend;
Draw me still nearer,
Lead me to the end;
When the world forsakes me,
And its friendship proves untrue,
In Thy tender mercy
Gently lead me through. [Refrain]

3 Down in the valley
Leave me not alone to die,
When time is fleeting,
Jesus, draw me nigh.
Just a little closer,
Nearer to Thy loving breast,
When we cross the river
To the land of rest. [Refrain]
