Jesus!  Saviour of My Soul

1.  Jesus!  Saviour of my soul,
  Let me to Thy refuge fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
  While the tempest still is nigh.

Chorus.—­Hide me, O my Saviour, hide
  Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into Thy haven guide,
  O receive my soul at last. 
Jesus!  Saviour of my soul,
  Let me to Thy refuge fly;
Ave, Ave, Jesus mild,
  Deign to hear Thy lowly child.

2.  Other refuge have I none,
  Hangs my helpless soul on Thee,
Leave, oh, leave me not alone,
  Still support and strengthen me.

Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee (REV.  E. CASWALL)

1.  Jesus, the very thought of Thee
  With rapture fills my breast;
But sweeter far Thy Face to see,
  And in Thy presence rest.

2.  Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
  Nor can the mem’ry find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest Name,
  O Saviour of mankind!

3.  Jesus, our only joy be Thou,
  As Thou our prize wilt be;
O Jesus, be our glory now
  And through eternity.

What Happiness Can Equal Mine?  (REV.  F. W. FABER)

1.  What happiness can equal mine? 
  I’ve found the object of my love: 
My Jesus dear, my King Divine,
  Is come to me from heav’n above;
He chose my heart for His abode,
  He there becomes my daily bread;
There on me flows His healing blood;
  There with His flesh my soul is fed.

Chorus.—­What happiness can equal mine? 
  I’ve found the object of my love: 
My Jesus dear, my King Divine,
  Is come to me from heav’n above.

2.  I am my love’s, and He is mine: 
  In me He dwells, in Him I live;
What greater treasures could I find? 
  And could, ye heavens, a greater give? 
O sacred banquet, heav’nly feast! 
  O overflowing source of grace,
Where God the food, and man, the guest,
  Meet and unite in sweet embrace!

The Love of Jesus

1.  O the priceless love of Jesus: 
  O the strength of grace divine;
All His gifts are showered upon me,
  All His blessings may be mine. 
He is throned in Heavenly glory
  Where no sin nor death can be;
Yet He loves me in this darkness,
  Yet He does not turn from me.

2.  I am blind, and poor, and wretched,
  By temptations sorely tried;
Yet His watchful care abounding
  Keeps me ever at His side. 
He is God and King Eternal,
  Higher than all height can be;
Yet His Heart is with me always,
  Yet He stoopeth down to me.

Holy God, We Praise Thy Name (REV.  C. WALWORTH)

1.  Holy God, we praise Thy name,
  Lord of all, we bow before Thee! 
All on earth Thy sceptre claim,
  All in heav’n above adore Thee.
|| Infinite Thy vast domain,
Everlasting is Thy name. ||
