Representative Text

1 O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee!
When I’m weak and weary,
And my path is dreary;
O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee.

2 O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee!
When the winds are blowing,
And my tears are flowing;
O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee.

3 O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee!
When my friends are leaving,
And my heart is grieving;
O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee.

4 O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee!
When I cross the river,
Which from earth doth sever,
O, let me cling to Thee,
My Saviour, cling to Thee.
