When Lifes Dark Billows Threaten


When life’s dark billows threat’ning roll,
And sombre clouds hang over me,
Sweet Refuge of my shrinking soul,
I cling to Thee, I cling to Thee.

Refrain:
And when I reach yon golden shore,
And pearly gates unfold for me,
Still then, my Saviour, as before,
I’ll cling to Thee, I’ll cling to Thee.

I cling to Thee in sorrow’s night;
I cling when dangers threaten me;
Till doubts shall cease to cloud my sight,
I cling to Thee, I cling to Thee. [Refrain]

Safe covert when my sins pursue;
Defense from foes I cannot see;
My faithful Friend, my Leader true,
I cling to Thee, I cling to Thee. [Refrain]
