Hymn/Song Information

Now I have found the ground wherein Sure my soulís

Now I have found the ground wherein
Sure my soulís anchor may remain,
The wounds of Jesus, for my sin
Before the worldís foundation slain;
Whose mercy shall unshaken stay,
When Heaven and earth are fled away.

Father, Thine everlasting grace
Our scanty thought surpasses far;
Thy heart still melts with tenderness,
Thy arms of love still open are,
Returning sinners to receive,
That mercy they may taste and live.

O Love, Thou bottomless abyss,
My sins are swallowed up in Thee!
Covered is my unrighteousness,
Nor spot of guilt remains on me,
While Jesusí blood,
through earth and skies,
Mercy, free, boundless mercy, cries.

With faith I plunge me in this sea,
Here is my hope, my joy, my rest;
Hither, when hell assails, I flee,
I look into my Saviorís breast;
Away, sad doubt, and anxious fear!
Mercy is all thatís written there.

Though waves and storms
go oíer my head,
Though strength, and health,
and friends be gone,
Though joys be withered all and dead,
Though every comfort be withdrawn,
On this my steadfast soul relies,
Father, Thy mercy never dies.

Fixed on this ground will I remain,
Though my heart fail, and flesh decay;
This anchor shall my soul sustain,
When earthís foundations melt away;
Mercyís full power I then shall prove,
Loved with an everlasting love.
