260. A Wonderful Savior is Jesus (He Hideth My Soul)

1 A wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord,
a wonderful Savior to me;
he hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
where rivers of pleasure I see.

Refrain:
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
that shadows a dry, thirsty land;
he hideth my life in the depths of his love,
and covers me there with his hand,
and covers me there with his hand.

2 A wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord,
he taketh my burden away;
he holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved;
he giveth me strength as my day. [Refrain]

3 With numberless blessings each moment he crowns,
and, filled with his fullness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God
for such a redeemer as mine! [Refrain]

4 When clothed in his brightness, transported I rise
to meet him clouds of the sky,
his perfect salvation, his wonderful love
I'll shout with the millions on high. [Refrain]
