Hymn/Song Information

On Thee O Jesus strongly leaning I calmly onward




On thee, O Jesus, strongly leaning,
I calmly onward go;
no cloud, no coldness intervening,
to damp love's blessed glow.
In thee for ever, Lord, abiding,
I feel that all is well;
within thy love for ever hiding,
who can my gladness tell?


True Light of light, for ever shining,
I hail thy happy ray;
bright Sun of suns, still undeclining,
'tis thou who mak'st my day!
Without thee life and time are sadness,
no fragrance breathes around;
but with thee even grief is gladness,
my heart its home hath found.


In thee my soul is sweetly resting,
my hand takes hold of thine;
my hope is ever upward hasting;
and thou, and thou, art mine!
My refuge from each storm that rages,
from wind, and wave, and war;
my home throughout eternal ages,
above yon sparkling star!


My hope, my joy, my peace, my glory,
my first, my last, my all;
great theme of the unending story
in yon celestial hall.
Great theme above, of song and wonder,
in ages yet to come;
true theme below, while here we wander,
alas, how cold and dumb!
