Representative Text

1 All the fears and misgivings that burdened my heart,
Like the mist of the morning flee;
Earthly worries and cares from my spirit depart,
When I think of His love for me.

Refrain:
When I think of His love for me;
There’s a calm on the troubled sea,
Though the billows may roll,
Joy and peace fill my soul,
When I think of His love for me.

2 The temptations of earth lose their treacherous pow’r,
And from bondage, He sets me free,
And the sweet bells f vict’ry ring out ev’ry hour,
When I think of His love for me. [Refrain]

3 Blessings rich and unnumbered in Jesus I find,
And by faith, shining realms I see;
Clouds of trial and grief with bright mercies are lined,
When I think of His love for me. [Refrain]
