Lyrics

Whom have I in Heav’n but Thee?
Whom on earth beside Thee?
Thou alone canst cheer my way:
Save, and guard, and guide me.

Refrain

Savior mine, I am Thine,
Thou wilt not deceive me;
If I put my trust in Thee,
Thou wilt never leave me.

Earthly friends may all forsake,
Earthly woes betide me;
Let me put my hand in Thine,
Walking close beside Thee.

Refrain

Who redeemed my soul from sin?
Life and pardon gave me?
All the glory be to Thee:
Thou hast died to save me.

Refrain

In the shadow of Thy wing,
I will safely hide me;
Whom have I in Heav’n but Thee?
Whom on earth beside Thee?
