Carry me tenderly, Jesus

Representative Text

1 Carry me tenderly, Jesus, my Saviour,
Gather me safe in thine arms so strong;
Carry me tenderly over life’s billows,
Carry me tenderly all the day long.

Refrain:
All the day long, all the day long,
Comfort my spirit, and fill me with song;
Carry me tenderly over life’s billows,
Tenderly, lovingly, all the day long.

2 Speak to me lovingly, Jesus, my Saviour,
Whisper thy name in my care worn heart;
Grant me thy beautiful sunlight of glory,
Then shall my fear like a dream depart. [Refrain]

3 Speak to my lovingly, Jesus, my Saviour,
Sweeter than music thy words that fall;
Thou art my hiding-place, O my Redeemer,
Thou art my portion, my life, my all. [Refrain]

4 Carry me tenderly thro’ the dark valley,
Carry me tenderly o’er the sea;
Then shall my conflicts and trials be ended,
Then shall I anchor, O Lord, with thee. [Refrain]
