Representative Text

1 Let me lean on Thy bosom, dear Savior, I pray,
Tho’ worthless and weary at heart;
Let me come! Give me shelter; Oh, turn not away,
Bid my gloom and my sorrow depart.

Refrain:
Let me lean on Thy bosom, dear Savior, I pray;
Let me lean on Thy bosom, dear Savior, I pray.

2 Let me lean on Thy bosom, dear Savior, I pray,
Tho’ erring and sinful, and vile;
Tho’ I’ve wandered, forgive me, I come back today,
And entreat for Thy favor and smile. [Refrain]

3 Let me lean on Thy bosom, dear Savior, I pray,
For there I new strength shall obtain;
To meet every trial that passes this way,
To bear without murmur all pain. [Refrain]

4 Let me lean on Thy bosom, dear Savior, I pray,
Held close in Thy loving embrace;
Nor leave me, no, no, lest I wander and stray,
And again I lose sight of Thy face. [Refrain]

5 Let me lean on Thy bosom, dear Savior, I pray,
My hand in Thine own while I sing
Of the grace which hath saved me, of this happy day,
When my heart owns that Jesus is King. [Refrain]
