1 Like Noah’s dove, I found no rest
Outside the Ark, unsaved, unblest,
But when away on sin’s deep sea,
A sweet voice said, “Come unto me.”

O refuge sweet, on Jesus’ breast,
In him alone is perfect rest;
From every fear and sin set free,
Dear Saviour, let me rest in thee.

2 As to the Ark the dove did fly
For rest and safety, so did I;
My weary soul found refuge there,
Where Jesus waits to answer pray’r. [Refrain]

3 Now safe in him, tho’ storms arise,
And darkness seem to veil the skies;
Sweet peace is mine, I trust his care
Whose mercies now enclose me there. [Refrain]

4 Within the Ark—‘twere death outside—
I dwell secure, and satisfied;
My soul is safe from all alarms,
Upheld by “Everlasting arms.” [Refrain]
