Always loving, kind and gentle, always loving~~Jesus, you,
You alone are my salvation, you alone redemption bring,
You alone my strength for day’s work, for you alone my song I sing.
You’re the song, the poem, the picture, every writer, artist craves;
Saves and heals, speaks peace, delivers from all fears and sin’s dark stain,
Sweetly falling on my dryness, heavenly sweet refreshing rain.
Faintest thoughts, I find (when trusting) see me through the darkest place
While the grandest schemes (untrusting) nullify and cloud your grace.
You alone, my precious Jesus, you alone with mercy’s cup,
Walking with me in life’s battle, heal my wounds and raise me up.
In my weakness storms come filling with distress and searing pain,
Sweetest music, tenderest message, from my heart to heaven’s ear,
Unto you, my King, ascribing every glory bright and clear.
The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
