O Hide Me

Representative Text

1 My soul, O Lord, is much distressed,
I flee unto Thee to hide me;
Where else, O Lord, can a soul find rest?
I flee unto Thee to hide me.

Refrain:
O hide me from the hidden foe,
O hide me from a world of woe,
O keep my feet wheree'r I go,
I flee unto Thee to hide me.

2 When storms arise and thunders roar,
I flee unto Thee to hide me;
Though I am weak, despised and poor,
I flee unto Thee to hide me. [Refrain]

3 From strong temptation, blessed Lord,
I flee unto Thee to hide me;
O keep me by Thy holy Word,
I flee unto Thee to hide me. [Refrain]

4 When demons seek to fill with dread,
I flee unto Thee to hide me;
When sickness binds me to my bed,
I flee unto Thee to hide me. [Refrain]

5 When evil men my soul would slay,
I flee unto Thee to hide me;
From ev'ry danger on life's way,
I flee unto Thee to hide me. [Refrain]

6 Until our Lord shall come again,
I flee unto Thee to hide me;
Till everlasting peace shall reign,
I flee unto Thee to hide me. [Refrain]
