In every trying hour
My soul to Je­sus flies;
I trust in His al­migh­ty power,
When swelling billows rise.

His comforts bear me up;
I trust a faithful God;
The sure foundation of my hope
Is in my Sav­ior’s blood.

Loud hallelujahs sing
To our Re­deem­er’s name,
In joy or sorrow—life or death—
His love is still the same.
