G Matheson

JESUS, Fountain of my days,

Well-spring of my heart’s delight,

Brightness of my morning rays,

Solace of my hours of night;

When I see Thee, I arise

To the hope of cloudless skies.


Oh, how weary were the years

Ere Thy form to me was known;

Oh, how gloomy were the fears

When I seemed to be alone;

I despaired the storm to brave

Till Thy footprints touched the wave.


But Thy presence on the deep

Calmed the pulses of the sea,

And the waters sank to sleep

In the rest of seeing Thee;

And my once rebellious will

Heard the mandate, Peace, be still!


Now Thy will and mine are one,

Heart in heart, and hand in hand;

All the clouds have touched the sun,

And the ships have reached the land;

For Thy love has said to me,

No more night! and No more sea!
