JESUS I know hath died for me,

This is my hope, my joy, my rest!

Hither, when hell assails, I flee,

And look into my Saviour's breast!

Away sad doubts and anxious fear,

Mercy is all that's written there.

Though waves and storms go o'er my head,

Though strength, and health, and friends be gone,

Though joys be withered all and dead,

And every comfort be withdrawn:

Steadfast on this my soul relies,

Father, thy mercy never dies.

Fix'd on this ground will I remain,

When heart shall fail and flesh decay;

This anchor shall my soul sustain,

When earth's foundations melt away:

Mercy's full power I then shall prove

Loved with an everlasting love!
