My faith is stayed on thee

Representative Text

1 My faith is stayed on Thee, O Lord,
Redeemer, King divine,
My soul rejoices in Thy Word,
I claim each promise mine.
I go from strength to strength each day,
Refreshed, O God, by Thee,
And all along my pilgrim way,
Thy guiding hand I see.

Chorus:
My faith, is stayed on Thee,
For Thou hast died for me,
O God, my King, to Thee I'll cling,
My faith is stayed on Thee.

2 My spirit leans on Thee, O God,
Thou art my Sun and Song,
Thine everlasting Arms are broad,
A refuge true and strong.
I know in whom I put my trust,
Nor can I be dismayed,
For Thou art kind and good and just,
On whom my faith is stayed. [Chorus]

3 My faith is fixed on Thee alone,
No other hope have I;
Thy saving grace and pow'r I owe,
And on Thy love rely.
Thy pard'ning blood can cleanse my soul,
And wash it white as snow.
O Saviour, come and make me whole,
Thy blessing now bestow. [Chorus]
