Jesus, Lover of My Soul

Jesus, Lover of My Soul is a beautiful hymn which I just learned several weeks ago. Here are the lyrics.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Amen

The hymn was written by Charles Wesley and composed by Joseph Parry after Wesley death, being rejected by Charles’ brother, John, for being to sentimental. It is one of the most loved hymn that come from Charles Wesley.

There is only one person out there who loves our souls and wants to redeem us from our sins and his name is Jesus Christ. He is the ONLY begotten son of God and the only one out there who knows everything there is to know about me or you.  If a falling sparrow does not escape his eyes how much more so us. (Especially since we’re a lot larger then a sparrow.) 🙂
