1.  Lord Jesus Christ,

My Savior blest,

My refuge and salvation,

I trust in Thee,

Abide in me,

Thy word shall be

My hope and consolation.

2.  I will confide,

Whate’er betide,

In Thy compassion tender.

When grief and stress

My heart oppress,

Thou wilt redress

And constant help me render.

3.  When I  must weep

In sorrow deep,

Thy loving care enfolds me.

I have no fear

When Thou art near,

My Savior dear;

Thy saving hand upholds me.

4.  Lord, I will be

Alway with Thee,

Wherever Thou wilt have me.

Do Thou control

My heart and soul

And make me whole,

Thy grace alone can save me.

5.  Yea, help us, Lord,

With one accord

To love and serve Thee solely,

That henceforth we

May dwell with Thee

In Jubilee

And see Thy presence holy.
