Representative Text

1 When in the tempest he’ll hide us,
When in the storm he’ll be near;
All the way ‘long he will carry us on,—
Now we have nothing to fear.

Jesus is strong to deliver,
Mighty to save, mighty to save!
Jesus is strong to deliver,
Jesus is mighty to save!

2 When in my sorrow he found me,
Found me, and bade me be whole,
Turn’d all my night into heavenly light,
And from me my burden did roll. [Refrain]

3 Why are you doubting and fearing,
Why are you still under sin?
Have you not found that his grace doth abound,
He’s mighty to save, let him in! [Refrain]

4 You say, “I am weak, I am helpless,
I’ve tried again and again;”
Well, this may be true, but it’s not what you do,
‘Tis he who’s the “mighty to save.” [Refrain]
