Full Text

1 Blessed Saviour, hear Thou me,
In my hour of sadness;
Draw my weary heart to Thee,
Turn its grief to gladness.

Refrain:
With The Cords of love untold,
Closer, closer bind me,
Safe within Thy precious fold,
Where no storm can find me.

2 Hear and grant my earnest pray’r,
Leave, O leave me never;
Sheltered ‘neath Thy tender care,
Hide and keep me ever. [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Saviour, lead Thou me
Thro’ each night of sorrow,
Till I come to dwell with Thee,
In a glorious morrow. [Refrain]

4 Keep me, Saviour, near to Thee,
Till I cross death’s river;
Then within Thy mansions fair,
Dwell with Thee forever. [Refrain]
