378 ( Charles Wesley

Jesus! lover of my soul,

Let me to Thy bosom fly,

While the raging billows roll —

While the tempest still is high!

Hide me, O my Saviour! hide,

'Til the storm of life is past;

Safe into the haven guide;

Oh, receive my soul at last!

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.

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.

Plenteous grace with Thee is found —

Grace to pardon 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!
