JESUS LOVER OF MY SOUL
Jesus lover of my soul, let me to Thy bosom fly; While the nearer waters flow, while the tempest still is
calm. Hide me, Oh, my Savior hide, till the storms of life is past. Save me to the Heavenly Guide; Oh,
receive my soul, at last. Other refuge, I have none, hangs my helpless soul on Thee; Leave, Oh leave me
not alone, still support and comfort me. All my trust on Thee is stayed; all my hope from Thee I pray.
Cover my defenceless head; with the shadow of Thy wing. Plenteous grace with Thee is found; Grace to
cover all my sin. Let the healing streams abound; may they keep me pure within. Thou of Life a fountain
art, freely let me take of Thee; Spring Thou up within my heart, Christ to rule Eternity.
And that Jesus was buried and that He rose again the third day, according to the scriptures; And that He
was seen of Peter, then of the twelve. After that He was seen of about five hundred brethren at once; of
whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some have fallen asleep. And after that He was seen
of James; and then of all the apostles. And last of all Jesus was seen of Paul also, as of one born out of
due time Paul says. ” For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I
persecuted the church of God But by the grace of God I am what I am; and His grace which was
bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the Grace
of God which was in me. Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.”
1 Cor. 15: 4-12.
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God, my Father. There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassion they fail not; As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.
Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness; Morning by morning, new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand has provided. Great is Thy faithfulness! Lord unto me.
Summer and winter; spring time and harvest; Sun moon and stars, in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness, To Thy great faithfulness mercy and love.
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide.
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow; Blessings all mine and ten thousand beside.
