Jesus, Lover of My Soul

 

Lyrics

  1. 1. Jesus, lover of my soul,

    Let me to thy bosom fly,

    While the nearer waters roll,

    While the tempest still is high.

    Hide me, O my Savior, hide,

    Till the storm of life is past.

    Safe into the haven guide;

    Oh, receive my soul at last.

  2. 2. Other refuge have I none;

    Hangs my helpless soul on thee.

    Leave, oh, leave me not alone;

    Still support and comfort me.

    All my trust on thee is stayed;

    All my help from thee I bring.

    Cover my defenseless head

    With the shadow of thy wing.
