O Jesus Christ, The Saviour

by J.G. Deck

Tune: Lancashire

1 O JESUS Christ, the Saviour,
We only look to Thee;
'Tis in Thy love and favour
Our souls find liberty.
While Satan fiercely rages,
And shipwreck we might fear,
'Tis this our grief assuages
That Thou art always near.

2 Yes, though the tempest round us
Seems safety to defy;
Though rocks and shoals surround us,
And billows swell on high,
Thou dost from all protect us,
And cheer us by Thy love;
Thy counsels still direct us
Safe to the rest above.

3 There with what joy reviewing
Past conflicts, dangers, fears,
Thy hand our foes subduing,
And drying all our tears;
Our hearts with rapture burning,
The path we shall retrace,
Where now our souls are learning
The riches of Thy grace.

4 Oh, then how loud the chorus
Shall to Thy name resound
From all at rest before us,
From all Thy grace hath found!
One joyful song for ever
Each heart, each lip shall raise,
The praise of our Redeemer,
Our God and Father's praise.
