Representative Text

1 In my Saviour I am trusting,
Sweetly He communes with me;
Day by day I’m calmly resting
In the Christ who died for me.

Refrain:
Blessed Christ my precious Saviour!
Blessed Lamb of Calvary
I am hiding and abiding
In the Christ who died for me.

2 In His love I am abiding,
Here my heart shall ever be;
‘Mid the storms of life I’m hiding
In the Christ who died for me. [Refrain]

3 I have found the balm of healing,
In the blood He shed for me;
Evermore my pardon sealing
In the Christ who died for me. [Refrain]

4 Grace, and strength and richest blessing,
Boundless love and liberty,
Ev’ry good I am possessing
In the Christ who died for me. [Refrain]
