1 O Jesus, Saviour of the lost,
My Rock and Hiding place,
By storms of sin and sorrow toss'd,
I seek Thy sheltering grace.
2 Guilty, forgive me, Lord, I cry;
Pursued by foes I come;
A sinner, save me, or I die;
An outcast, take me home.
3 Once safe in Thine Almighty arms,
Let storms come on amain;
There danger never, never harms;
There death itself is gain.
4 And when I stand before Thy throne,
And all Thy glory see,
Still be my righteousness alone
To hide myself in Thee.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
O Jesus, Saviour of the lost. Bishop E. H. Bickersteth. [Jesus, the Rock.] Appeared in his Water from the Well-Spring, &c, 1852, p. 180, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed, "Thou art my Rock." In 1858 it was repeated in his Psalms & Hymns, No. 135; and again, as "O Jesu, Saviour, &c," in his Hymnal Companion, 1870 and 1876. It is also in use in America. Bishop Bickersteth dates its composition 1849, but it is not in his Poems of that year.
