Representative Text

1 Jesus, Lord and only Savior,
Bids my troubled heart be still,
And thru life, whate’er my portion,
Still to joy in his sweet will.

Foretastes sweet of joy eternal
Come to those he calls his own;
He is mine, oh, joy supernal!
Give me him alone.

2 Woes may come and sore affliction,
Earthly joys and comforts flee;
Yet amid abounding sorrows
Truest joy I find in thee. [Refrain]

3 Friends may fail and foes surround me,
Wells of comfort all run dry;
Yet my soul exults with gladness,
When I know my Lord is nigh. [Refrain]

4 Only source of consolation,
Balm of Gilead from above,
All along my pilgrim journey
May I joy in thy sweet love. [Refrain]
