English Hymn S-T

1. Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on his gentle breast,
There by his love o’ershaded,
Sweetly my soul shall rest.
Hark! ’tis the voice of angels
Borne in a song to me
Over the fields of glory,
Over the jasper sea.

Chorus
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on his gentle breast,
There, by his love o’ershaded,
Sweetly my soul shall rest.

2. Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe from corroding care,
Safe from the world’s temptations,
Sin cannot harm me there.
Free from the blight of sorrow,
Free from my doubts and fears;
Only a few more trials,
Only a few more tears.

3. Jesus, my heart’s dear refuge,
Jesus has died for me;
Firm on the rock of ages
Ever my trust shall be.
Here let me wait with patience,
Wait till the night is o’er,
Wait till I see the morning
Break on the golden shore.

 


1. Safely through another week
God has brought us on our way;
let us now a blessing seek,
waiting in his courts today;
day of all the week the best,
emblem of eternal rest,
day of all the week the best,
emblem of eternal rest.

2. While we pray for pard’ning grace,
through the dear Redeemer’s name,
show thy reconciling face;
take away our sin and shame;
from our worldly cares set free,
may we rest this day in thee,
from our worldly cares set free,
may we rest this day in thee.

3. Here we come thy name to praise,
let us feel thy presence near;
may thy glory meet our eyes,
while we in thy house appear:
here afford us, Lord, a taste
of our everlasting feast,
here afford us, Lord, a taste
of our everlasting feast.

4. May thy gospel’s joyful sound
conquer sinners, comfort saints;
may the fruits of grace abound,
bring relief for all complaints:
thus may all our Sabbaths prove,
till we join the church above,
thus may all our Sabbaths prove,
till we join the church above.

 


1. Savior, lead me lest I, stray,
Gently lead me all the way;
I am safe when by thy side,
I would in thy love abide.

Refrain:
Lead me, lead me.
Savior, lead me lest I stray;
Gently down the stream of time,
Lead me, Savior, all the way.

2. Thou the refuge of my soul,
When life’s stormy billows roll;
I am safe when thou art nigh,
All my hopes on thee rely.

3. Savior, lead me, then at last,
When the storm of life is past;
To the land of endless day,
Where all tears are wiped away.
