None but Christ

Representative Text

1 "None but Christ," my soul is crying,
Sweetest peace there comes to me,
Everlasting joy and pleasure,
Since, O God, I'm stayed on Thee.

Stayed on Thee,
Stayed on Thee,
Sweetest peace within abideth,
Since my mind is stayed on Thee.

2 Raging storms of sore afflictions,
Sweeping o'er life's open sea,
Fright me not, I've cast my anchor,
And my mind is stayed on Thee. [Refrain]

3 Earth's reproach I bear with pleasure,
If for Christ it all may be;
Thou, I know, wilt ne'er forsake me,
Since my mind is stayed on Thee. [Refrain]

4 Short or long may be my journey,
Ere Thy face, O Lord, I see;
Yet e'en now I know Thou'rt with me,
Since my mind is stayed on Thee. [Refrain]
