1 In the darkest hour
That my heart may know
Out of Satan’s power
Whiter shall I go?

Refrain:
To Jesus! to Jesus!
Only unto Jesus,
The Saviour so compassionate,
The sinner’s only Friend,
The Saviour so compassionate,
The sinner’s only Friend.

2 Here there is no refuge
For the soul oppressed;
Whither shall I journey?
Whither seek for rest? [Refrain]

3 Poor, and weak, and wretched,
Full of fears and woe,
To be free from torment,
Whither can I go? [Refrain]

4 Bound in cords of anguish,
By my sins dismayed;
Whither, then, ah, wither
Can I look for aid? [Refrain]

5 Joy in tribulation!
Hope that sets me free!
Jesus, my salvation,
Lo! I turn to thee. [Refrain]
