1 I’ve found a refuge now from every sorrow,
Joy everlasting and sweet;
I see this world, with all its sinful follies,
Conquered at my feet.

Oh, blessed thought, my sins are gone!
I lean on Jesus’ breast,
And while the storm without is madly raging,
I have perfect rest.

2 Oh, could you offer every earthly treasure,
Diamonds and pearls of the sea;
Then, turning from them I would gladly whisper,
“Christ has set me free.” [Refrain]

3 Far brighter than the shining stars above me,
Beaming with beauty and grace,
Adorned in heaven’s majesty and splendor,
Is my resting place. [Refrain]
