Cast…all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.@1 Peter 5:7

Kate Ulmer, in Songs of the Century, edited by George D. Elderkin, John R. Sweney & William J. Kirkpatrick (Chicago, Illinois: George D. Elderkin, 1900).

Sheltered William J. Kirkpatrick (🔊 pdf nwc).

Where shall I flee for refuge,
Hiding when storms are near?
Where find a place of safety,
Dwelling without a fear?

Refrain

Jesus alone can save me,
All of my joys increase;
From every storm He’ll shield me,
Giving my soul sweet peace.

Softly I hear Him calling,
Come unto Me, and rest;
Here in My arms find shelter,
Close to My loving breast.

Refrain

Burdens ofttimes oppress me,
Burdens so hard to bear;
O, then, how sweet His whisper,
Cast upon Me thy care.

Refrain

Thus would I ever journey
On tow’ard my home above,
Resting alone on Jesus,
Whom, tho’ unseen, I love.

Refrain
