Jesus, Lover of my soul

Jesus, lover of my soul,
let me to your presence fly,
while the gathering waters roll,
while the tempest still is high.
Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,
till the storm of life is past;
safe into the haven, guide
and receive my soul at last.

2. Other refuge have I none,
all my hope in you I see:
leave, O leave me, not alone;
still support and strengthen me.
All my trust on you is stayed,
all my help from you I bring:
cover my defenceless head
with the shadow of your wing.

3. You, O Christ, are all I want,
more than all in you I find:
raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
heal the sick and lead the blind.
Just and holy is your name,
I am all unworthiness;
false and full of sin I am,
you are full of truth and grace.

4. Boundless grace with you is found,
grace to cover all my sin:
let the healing streams abound;
make and keep me clean within.
Living Fountain, now impart
all your life and purity;
spring for ever in my heart,
rise to all eternity!
