Full Text

1. Thou art my strength and shield,
My refuge and my grace;
When earthly helpers flee,
Thou art my hiding place.

I come, I come,
In sorrow and in my distress,
I come, I come,
To Thee for holiness.

2. A home for weary souls,
A rock my trust to stay,
My shepherd and my guide,
Who only knows the way. [Refrain]

3. My sins how manifold,
Yet Thou canst cleanse them all;
Oh, lead me to Thy home,
And keep me lest I fall. [Refrain]
