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.

Refrain:
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]
