Jesus, Lover of My Soul

Jesus, Lover of My Soul
Words: Charles Wesley

"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;
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."

"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,
Source of all true righteousness;
Thou art evermore the same,
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."

In Your Mercy

"In Your mercy, You have shown me Your Salvation.
Undesearving of Your favor I am free.
And I'll never be the same.
All my life I will remain,
In Your mercy, tender mercy shown to me."

"In your mercy, You have promised to be near me.
I am resting in the shelter of your wings.
Every fear I leave behind.
Every confidence I find,
In Your mercy, tender mercy shown to me."

"So great is Your love, higher than the Heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches the sky.
Be exaulted O Lord over all the earth.
Let Your glory be seen in my life.
In my life."

"In Your mercy, You have given of Your life blood.
One last heartbeat and redemption was complete.
What a deabt of love You paid.
With Your death my soul was saved.
In your mercy, tender mercy shown to me."
