From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.@Psalm 61:2

Remember me, dear Lord, today,
My sorrow Thou dost know;
My heart is pressed with care and grief,
To Thee, dear Lord, I go.

Refrain

To Thee, dear Lord, to Thee, I go,
Thou canst sustain and comfort me,
To Thee, dear Lord, to Thee, I go.
To Thee, dear Lord, I go.

The floods of grief around me rise,
The winds of trouble blow;
Thou art the rock I’m resting on,
To Thee, dear Lord, I go.

Refrain

Thou, only Thou, hast power to heal
The sorrows here below;
Thy love will soothe the stricken heart,
To Thee, dear Lord, I go.

Refrain

In every trial that we meet,
Thy loving help bestow;
In time of grief, in time of need,
To Thee, dear Lord, I go.
