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 Savior, hide, till the storm of life is past;
    Safe into the haven guide; O receive my soul at last.

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.

3. Wilt Thou not regard my call? Wilt Thou not accept my prayer?
    Lo! I sink, I faint, I fall—Lo! on Thee I cast my care;
Reach me out Thy gracious hand! While I of Thy strength receive,
    Hoping against hope I stand, dying, and behold, I live.

4. 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;
    False and full of sin I am; Thou art full of truth and grace.

5. 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.

    Hello again,
    This song number should be 402. The number you have given, 653, is for: Don’t Forget the Sabbath

  2. pp2300 says:

    Thanks for pointing that out! Actually it is 401. The songbook has two tunes with the same words, 401 and 402. I used the tune from 401. But I’ve corrected it now.

  3. Nathan says:

    Okay thanks.

    Oh, sorry, I guess I should have listened to it first!
    This tune does not appear in the 1941 SDA Hymnal. The words are used in 401 and 402, but this tune is another one called ABERYSTWYTH, written by a Welsh composer, Joseph Parry. I got confused because I actually had a guitar solo recording of 401, but decided it wasn’t good enough to put up on the site, so I used this other recording, not realizing it was a different tune.
