Representative Text

1 When the clouds of trouble gather
And the stormy waves roll high,
Walking on the tossing billows,
See, the blessed Lord draws nigh.

Jesus loveth you
With a love so true,
Ev’ry moment He will care for you;
He your steps will guide,
Walking at your side,
If you in His love abide.

2 From His fold if you should wander,
In a desert land to stray,
He will follow, gently calling,
Bring you back into His way. [Chorus]

3 Earthly friends may oft forsake you,
Dearest human love grow cold;
Love like His can never fail you
Nor the highest good withhold. [Chorus]

4 Sweetest peace from heav’n descending,
Now your troubled heart will fill
If you yield your heart to Jesus,
Trust in Him and do His will. [Chorus]
