Representative Text

1 Strength in our weakness,
Hope in our fears,
Shield in our danger,
Joy in our tears,—
Friend of the friendless,
Guide to the lost,—
Over life’s billow
Tempted and tossed.

Fountain of mercy,
Flowing so free,
Jesus our Saviour,
We live but in Thee.

2 Light in our darkness,
Song in our night,
Star of our morning,
Tranquil and bright,—
Home of the homeless,
Balm of the heart,
Calm in our tempest,
Saviour, Thou art. [Refrain]

3 God of creation,
Author of love,
Door of the sheepfold,
Leading above,—
Rest in our trials,
Bliss in our pain,
Son of the Father,
Lamb that was slain. [Refrain]
