Jesus, I come to Thee,
Longing for rest;
Fold Thou Thy weary child
Safe to Thy breast.

Refrain

Rocked on a stormy sea,
Oh, be not far from me,
Lord, let me cling to Thee,
Only to Thee.

Jesus, I come to Thee,
Hear Thou my cry;
Save, or I perish, Lord,
Save or I die.

Refrain

Now let the rolling waves
Bend to Thy will,
Say to the troubled deep,
Peace, peace be still.

Refrain

Swiftly the parting clouds
Fade from my sight;
Yonder Thy bow appears,
Lovely and bright.

Refrain
