1 When the way seems dark and drear,
And thy soul is filled with fear,
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus;
Never let thy faith grow dim;
Trust thy all in all to him;
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus.

Refrain:
He has promised to be with us unto the end,
Be not afraid, be not afraid,
Every trial draws him nearer, his aid to lend,
Be not dismayed, be not dismayed.

2 When the clouds so intervene
That no star of hope is seen,
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus;
Fly to him in earnest pray’r,
Seek his wealth of loving care;
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When our earthly comforts fail,
And the foes of life prevail,
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus;
Then beneath his banner true
We may all our foes subdue;
What a refuge strong is found in Jesus. [Refrain]
