Our ever present aid

Representative Text

1 Thou very present Aid
In suffering and distress;
The soul which still on Thee is stayed
Is kept in perfect peace.

2 The soul by faith reclined
On his Redeemer's breast,
Midst raging storms exults to find
An everlasting rest.

3 Sorrow and fear are gone,
Whene'er Thy face appears;
It still the sighing orphan's moan,
And dries the widow's tears.

4 It hallows every cross;
It sweetly comforts me;
Makes me forget my every loss,
And find my all in Thee.

5 Peace to the troubled heart,
Health to the sin-sick mind;
The wounded spirit's Balm Thou art,
The Healer of mankind.

6 Jesus, to whom I fly,
Doth all my wishes fill;
In vain created streams are dry,
In have the Fountain still.

7 Stript of my earthly friends,
I fend them all in One;
And peace, and joy that never ends,
And heaven, in Christ alone.

In 1726 Charles Wesley was elected to a Westminster studentship at Christ Church, Oxford, where he took his degree in 1729, and became a college tutor. In the early part of the same year his religious impressions were much deepene… Go to person page >

DENNIS (Nägeli)

Lowell Mason (PHH 96) arranged DENNIS and first published it in The Psaltery (1845), a hymnal he compiled with George. Webb (PHH 559). Mason attributed the tune to Johann G. Nageli (b.
