Representative Text

1. When Jesus no longer stands preciously nigh,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
I look to the Rock that is higher than I,
And peace, wondrous peace floods my soul.

Refrain
Jesus satisfies, Jesus satisfies;
Clouds at His presence roll away;
Jesus satisfies, Jesus satisfies;
His glory turns my darkness into day.

2. The sun may be shining on fields bright and gay,
With springtime perfumes in the breeze;
Yet, life without Jesus is winter in May,
Without Him no prospect can please. [Refrain]

3. If living like Paul all victorious and free,
Tho’ beaten while multitudes stare;
Tho’ put behind bars ’twould be heaven to me,
For Jesus will dwell with me there. [Refrain]

4. If faithful in standing for what I believe
Brings scoffing and fire, I can dare
To laugh in the furnace where I am to burn,
For Jesus will dwell with me there. [Refrain]
