Lyrics

Hear me, blessèd Jesus,
Bid all fear depart;
Let Thy Spirit whisper
Peace within my heart.

Refrain

Then, whatever Thou sendest,
Happy I shall be,
Jesus, my Redeemer,
Looking unto Thee.

Let me fully trust Thee,
Resting on Thy Word;
Let me still with patience
Wait on Thee, O Lord.

Refrain

Hiding in the shadow
Of Thy sheltering wings,
I shall rest confiding
In the King of kings.
