Where Shall I Flee For Refuge

Where I shall I flee for refuge,
Hiding when storms are near?
Where find a place of safety,
Dwelling without a fear?

Jesus alone can save me,
All of my joys increase;
From every storm He’ll shield me,
Giving my soul sweet peace.

Softly I hear Him calling,
“Come unto Me, and rest;
Here in My arms find shelter,
Close to My loving breast.” [Refrain]

Burdens ofttimes oppress me,
Burdens so hard to bear;
O, then, how sweet His whisper,
“Cast upon Me thy care.” [Refrain]

Thus would I ever journey
On tow’ard my home above,
Resting alone on Jesus,
Whom, tho’ unseen, I love. [Refrain]
