Jesus, Lover of My Soul Sheet Music

The traditional hymn lyrics put to original music by Chas Hathaway.


Jesus, lover of my soul,
While the nearer waters roll,
let me to Thy bosom fly,
while the tempest still is high.
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
Safe into the haven guide;

Other refuge have I none,
Leave, oh! leave me not alone,
hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
still support and comfort me.
all my help from Thee I bring;
with the shadow of Thy wing.

Thou, O Christ, art all I want,
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
more than all in Thee I find;
heal the sick, and lead the blind.

Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Let the healing streams abound;
grace to cover all my sin;
make and keep me pure within.
freely let me take of Thee;
rise to all eternity.

- Charles Wesley, 1740 (verses/lyrics rearranged some for this arrangement)
