When The World My Heart Is Rending


When the world my heart is rending,
With its heaviest storm of care,
My glad tho’ts to God ascending,
Find a refuge from despair.

Refrain:
I love Jesus, Hallelujah!
I love Jesus, yes, I do,
I do love Jesus; He’s my Saviour;
Jesus smiles, and loves me too.
There’s a hand of mercy near me,
Tho’ the waves of trouble roar;
There’s an hour of rest to cheer me,
When the toils of life are o’er.

O, to rest in peace forever,
Joined with happy souls above,
Where no foe my heart can sever
From the Saviour whom I love. [Refrain]

This the hope that shall sustain me,
Till life’s pilgrimage is past;
Tears may vex and trouble pain me;
I shall reach my home at last. [Refrain]
