He Hideth My Soul

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
  A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
  Where rivers of pleasure I see.
  He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
  That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life in the depths of His love,
  And covers me there with His hand,
    And covers me there with His hand.
A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
  He taketh my burden away;
He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved,
  He giveth me strength as my day.
With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,
  And, filled with His fulness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God,
  For such a Redeemer as mine!
When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise
  To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love,
  I’ll shout with the millions on high.

So pleased to be able to "memorize" again my old songs that have helped me over the years to live my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ -

Oh! so special.

I learned these songs from my mother who died when I was 16 years old.

I did not know Fanny Crosby wrote this song, I heard it today on the Moody Church Hour, and treasure it. I miss singing the old hymns at my church. So I get out my hymnal and sit on my patio and lift up the great, deep hymns of yesteryear, to fill my hungry heart and honor my Lord with these timeless songs.

What a comfort. My mom's favorite song as she battles cancer.

Oh glorious Lord, I magnify and praise You now! Thank You for such a great salvation! Thank You for perfect love! Thank You for protecting me even when assailed by doubts and fears. Even when I'm confused, struggling, or feel like it's hopeless, You are always there and are always loving me. I believe O Lord, help my unbelief! Thank You O wonderful Savior!

I was just in a car accident with my two teenagers yesterday and recalled this hymn as I was waking up. I am so grateful for this website. I was able to read and sing with all the words to the hymn, which have even more meaning to me than when I first have Him my heart. Thank you so much. God bless you!
