Representative Text

1 Tho’ mightiest billows should over me roll,
While journeying over life’s sea,
One song in all trial will comfort my soul:
‘Tis Jesus for me!

Jesus for me! Jesus for me!
Living or dying, with Him I shall be;
Wherever I dwell, His love I will tell—
Jesus for me!

2 The Christ is my Harbor, my Refuge—my Tower;
My Shield and my Buckler is He;
There’s no one so precious in sorrow’s dark hour,
As Jesus to me! [Refrain]

3 He helps in temptation—in bitter distress;
To Him in all trouble I flee,
Well knowing His pity—His great tenderness;
Oh, Jesus for me! [Refrain]
