Representative Text

1 In the shelter of the Saviour’s love,
There my soul would evermore abide,
Thro’ the cleansing pow’r of Jesus’ blood
I’m safe, whatever may betide;
Tho’ I’ve wandered far away from God,
Tho’ my feet have trod the paths of sin,
Yet I know there’s pardon thro’ the blood,
For all who plunge the fount within.

In his love I will abide,
Safely sheltered by his side,
I am fully satisfied,
For I know thro’ his blood I’m redeemed.

2 ’Neath the shadow of his mighty wing
I am safe, tho’ waves of sorrow roll,
’Mid the tempest, I can sweetly sing,
For Jesus’ blood has saved my soul;
Tho’ the clouds oft gather in the sky,
Making dark the lonely way I go,
Yet I hear the promise of his word,
“Sufficient grace I will bestow.” [Refrain]

3 Blessed anchor of the trusting soul!
Thee I trust, my rock, my hope and guide,
Every raging storm thou dost control,
With thee, no evil can betide;
Oh, the greatness of thy boundless love!
Thou didst save, poor sinner though I be,
Thro’ the cleansing of thy precious blood
I’m saved to all eternity. [Refrain]
