Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.1170

First Line: O my Redeemer,

O my Redeemer,
What a Friend Thou art to me !
Oh, what a Refuge
I have found in Thee !
When the way was dreary,
And my heart was sore oppressed,
'Twas Thy voice that lulled me
To a calm, sweet rest.

Nearer, draw nearer,
Till my soul is lost in Thee ;
Nearer, draw nearer,
Blessed Lord, to me.

2 When in their beauty
Stars unveil their silver light,
Then, O my Saviour,
Give me songs at night —
Songs of yonder mansions,
Where the dear ones, gone before,
Sing Thy praise for ever,
On that peaceful shore.

3 Jesus, my Saviour,
When the last deep shadows fall;
When in the silence
I shall hear Thy call-
In Thine arms reposing,
Let me breathe my life away,
And awake triumphant,
In eternal day.
