415 Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

I

What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms;

What a blessedness, what a peace is mine, leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning (on Jesus), leaning (on Jesus), safe and secure from all alarms;

Leaning (on Jesus), leaning (on Jesus), leaning on the everlasting arms.

II

Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms;

O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning (on Jesus), leaning (on Jesus), safe and secure from all alarms;

Leaning (on Jesus), leaning (on Jesus), leaning on the everlasting arms.

III

What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms?

I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning (on Jesus), leaning (on Jesus), safe and secure from all alarms;

Leaning (on Jesus), leaning (on Jesus), leaning on the everlasting arms.

 

51 Blessed Assurance

I

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! O what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God, born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song, praising my Saviour all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song: praising my Saviour all the day long.

II

Perfect submission, perfect delight, visions of rapture now burst on my sight;

Angels descending bring from above, echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

This is my story, this is my song, praising my Saviour all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song: praising my Saviour all the day long.

III

Perfect submission, all is at rest, I in my Saviour am happy and blest,

Watching and waiting, looking above, filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

This is my story, this is my song, praising my Saviour all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song: praising my Saviour all the day long.

 

129 At the Cross

I

Alas! and did my Saviour bleed? And did my Sov’reign die?

Would He devote that sacred head for such a worm as I?

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,

And the burden of my heart rolled away,

It was there by faith I received my sight, and now I am happy all the day!

II

Was it for crimes that I had done, He groaned upon the tree?

Amazing pity! grace unknown! And love beyond degree!

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,

And the burden of my heart rolled away,

It was there by faith I received my sight, and now I am happy all the day!

III

Well might the sun in darkness hide, and shut his glories in,

When Christ, the mighty Maker died for man the creature’s sin.

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,

And the burden of my heart rolled away,

It was there by faith I received my sight, and now I am happy all the day!

IV

But drops of grief can ne’er repay the debt of love I owe:

Here, Lord, I give myself away, ‘Tis all that I can do!

At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,

And the burden of my heart rolled away,

It was there by faith I received my sight, and now I am happy all the day!

 

390 Love Lifted Me

I

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,

Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more;

But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry,

From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me! when nothing else could help, love lifted me.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me! when nothing else could help, love lifted me.

II

All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling,

In His blessed presence live, ever His praises sing.

Love so mighty and so true merits my soul’s best songs;

Faithful, loving service, too, to Him belongs.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me! when nothing else could help, love lifted me.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me! when nothing else could help, love lifted me.

III

Souls in danger, look above, Jesus completely saves;

He will lift you by His love out of the angry waves.

He’s the Master of the sea, billows His will obey;

He your Saviour wants to be – be saved today.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me! when nothing else could help, love lifted me.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me! when nothing else could help, love lifted me.
