BLESSED Lord, in Thee is refuge,

Safety for my trembling soul,

Power to lift my head when drooping

’Midst the angry billows’ roll.

I will trust Thee, I will trust Thee;

All my life Thou shalt control.


In the past, too, unbelieving,

’Midst the tempest I have been,

And my heart has slowly trusted

What my eyes have never seen.

Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus,

Teach me on Thy arm to lean.


Oh, for trust, that brings the triumph,

When defeat seems strangely near;

Oh, for faith, that changes fighting

Into victory’s ringing cheer:

Faith triumphant, faith triumphant,

Knowing not defeat nor fear.


Faith triumphant, blessed victory;

Every barrier swept away:

Heaven descending, joy and fulness,

Dawn of everlasting day.

Jesus only, Jesus only,

Him to love and Him obey.
