Jesus, Lover of My Soul

Jesus, Lover of my soul, Let me to Thy bossom fly,
While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high.
Hide me, O my Saviour, 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.

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 my pure within.
Thou of life the Fountain art, Freely let me take of Thee;
Spring Thou up within my heart, Rise to all eternity.

Words ~ Charles Wesley
Sung ~ Fernando Ortega

Wow...an absolutely beautiful song. I have this song on a "Soundforth" CD, but I don't think I've ever heard the Fernando Ortega version...

Thank you all! This is one of my favorite songs, I just listen to it and pray it out in my heart!

Rosebud's Mom ~ :) The album is called Beginnings, it is actually a two C.D. set. But I downloaded it off of amazon and got it that way. Here is the link, if you're interested. Fernando sings a lot of other well known, older hymns on that set as well.
