1 "Jesus, lover of my soul,"
Bids me in His bosom stay,
And tho’ billows round me roll,
I am safely hid away;
For He holds me in His arms,
Quite beyond the tempest’s reach,
And He whispers in my heart
Words unknown to human speech.

2 "Other refuge have I none,"
He my habitation is;
Here no evil can befall—
I am kept in perfect peace.
I am covered all day long
With the shadow of His wing;
Dwell in safety thro’ the night,
Waking, this is what I sing.

3 "Thou, O Christ, art all I want,"
Rest my helpless soul on Thee;
Thou wilt never leave alone
Nor forget to comfort me.
Thou hast saved my soul from death,
Thou hast scattered all my fears,
And the sunshine of Thy face
Sweetly drieth all my tears.
