Hymn/Song Information

TAKING REFUGE IN THE CROSS




Nothing here can satisfy,
Nought can ease my troubled breast;
Earthly joys in vain I try,
These afford no solid rest.


Wealth nor mirth nor honours can
Yield a balm to my complaint,
íTis beyond the reach of man,
To restore a drooping saint.


Jesus, to thy cross I fly,
Thence my comforts 1 derive ;
At thy feet I prostrate lie,
Till thou dost my soul revive.


Lord, regard my broken prayer,
All my hope in thee is found;
Thou canst save mc from despair,
Make my peace and joy abound.
