2407. Hide Me, Oh, My Savior!

1. When my heart is sore oppressed,
And I seek in vain for rest,
This my daily prayer shall be,
Draw me nearer, Lord, to Thee.

Hide me, Oh, my Savior, hide me,
’Till the storm of life is past;
Safe inside the haven guide me,
Oh, receive my soul at last.

2. In temptation’s trying hour,
When I feel the tempter’s power,
Near me then, O Lord, abide,
Strengthen me, and be my guide. [Refrain]

3. When my day of life is o’er,
And I tremble on the shore
Of the dark and unknown sea,
Then, O Lord, my comfort be. [Refrain]
