Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.
Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my Strength, my victory wins.
While the billows over me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my Comfort, helps my soul.
While the tempest still is high,
Storms about me, night overtakes me,
He, my Pilot, hears my cry.
More than all in Him I find.
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.
