Full Text

1 I came to the fountain of blessing,
And looking to Jesus in prayer,
I felt the sweet peace that He promised,
And knew that His presence was there.

And now, in His love I’m abiding;
What moments of joy I see;
For O, at the fountain of blessing,
My Saviour communes with me.

2 The cloud from my spirit He lifted,
And covered with sunshine my way;
He taught me the beautiful lesson
Of trusting from day unto day. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ trials may sometimes o’ertake me,
And sorrow perhaps may befall,
I rest in the perfect assurance,
His grace is sufficient for all. [Refrain]
