Hymn/Song Information

Laden with guilt and full of fears




Laden with guilt, and full of fears,
I fly to Thee, my Lord,
And not a glimpse of hope appears
But in Thy written Word.


The volume of my Fatherís grace
Does all my griefs assuage;
Here I behold my Saviorís face
Almost in every page.


This is the field where hidden lies
The pearl of price unknown;
That merchant is divinely wise
Who makes the pearl his own.


Here consecrated water flows
To quench my thirst of sin;
Here the fair tree of knowledge grows,
Nor danger dwells therein.


This is the Judge that ends the strife
Where wit and reason fail,
My guide to everlasting life
Through all this gloomy vale.


O may Thy counsels, mighty God,
My roving feet command;
Nor I forsake the happy road
That leads to Thy right hand.
