1 When the world my heart is rending,
With its heaviest storm of care,
My glad tho’ts to God ascending,
Find a refuge from despair.
I love Jesus, Hallelujah!
I love Jesus, yes, I do,
I do love Jesus; He’s my Saviour;
Jesus smiles, and loves me too.
There’s a hand of mercy near me,
Tho’ the waves of trouble roar;
There’s an hour of rest to cheer me,
When the toils of life are o’er.
2 O, to rest in peace forever,
Joined with happy souls above,
Where no foe my heart can sever
From the Saviour whom I love. [Refrain]
3 This the hope that shall sustain me,
Till life’s pilgrimage is past;
Tears may vex and trouble pain me;
I shall reach my home at last. [Refrain]
