1 There is a refuge, sweet, secure,
For ev’ry burdened soul,
In Jesus’ love it standeth sure,
Tho’ heavy tempests roll
Across the breast, they cannot harm,
If thou to Him wilt go,
Protected by His mighty arm,
Full safety thou shalt know.
2 When danger threatens, thou canst fly
Unto this stronghold free;
When unto Him thy soul shall cry,
He’ll help and comfort thee,
He’ll keep thee safe with His hand,
And never let thee go;
Firm by His grace thy feet shall stand,
Joy-springs for thee shall flow.
3 There is a refuge, peaceful, calm,
In Jesus’ love ‘tis found,
And there each heart shall find a balm
For ev’ry blessing wound,
For ev’ry burden ev’ry pain,
There waits a sweet release,
And thou with Him in heav’n shall reign,
In everlasting peace.
