    Verse 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 Saviour, hide!
    Till the storm of life be past;
    Safe into the haven guide,
    O receive my soul at last!

    Verse 2
    Other refuge have I none,
    Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
    Leave, ah! 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.

    Verse 3
    Thou, O Christ, art all I want,
    More than all in Thee I find;
    Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
    Heal the sick, and lead the blind.

    Just and holy is Thy name,
    I am all unrighteousness;
    Vile and full of sin I am,
    Thou art full of truth and grace.

    Verse 4
    Plenteous grace with Thee is found
    Grace to cover all my sin;
    Let the healing streams abound,
    Make and keep me pure within;

    Thou of life the Fountain art,
    Freely let me take of Thee;
    Spring Thou up within my heart,
    Rise to all eternity.
