Full Text

1 My heart is fixed on Jesus, the sun of all my tho’t;
What wondrous work of grace His love within my soul hath wrought!
He found me poor and helpless, by ev’ry sin oppressed,
And died that I might be redeemed, and have eternal rest.

Refrain:
My heart is fixed on Jesus,
No other hope have I;
I could not live without Him,
And without Him dare not die.

2 My heart is fixed on Jesus, without Him life is vain;
His promise is thro’ all my days to comfort and sustain;
I love to hear Him whisper – “Be not afraid – ’tis I!’
As o’er the stormy sea I sail beneath a clouded sky. [Refrain]

3 My heart is fixed on Jesus, since I to Him belong,
For every day He gives me hope, for every night a song;
Thro trial and deep water His promises are sweet,
And, sheltered ’neath His wings of love I find a safe retreat. [Refrain]
