Jesus, lover of my soul

1
Jesus, lover of my soul,
Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high:
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last.
2
Other refuge have I none,
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, oh, leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me.
All my trust on Thee is stayed,
All my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenseless head
With the shadow of Thy wing.
3
Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
More than all in Thee I find;
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick and lead the blind.
Just and holy is Thy name,
I am all unrighteousness;
Vile and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.
4
Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound;
Make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art,
Freely let me take of Thee;
Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.

I love this new tune for "Jesus, Lover of My Soul"! Is there any information on the composer? I am arranging a number of hymns for violin and piano, and I included this tune with Aberswyth and the Marsh tune in a nice arrangement. I would like to give credit to the composer of the melody if they can be found.

Thou, O Christ, art all I want;

More than all in Thee I find...

Vile and full of sin I am,

Thou art full of truth and grace.

Jesus, lover of my soul,

Let me to Thy bosom fly,

While the nearer waters roll,

While the tempest still is high:

Hide me, O my Savior, hide,

Till the storm of life is past;

Safe into the haven guide;

O receive my soul at last.

Amen

Lord Jesus! Hide me while the tempest still is high and while I am in the storm of life. O Lord Jesus, forgive me for all my sins! Lord just hide me in the shadow of your wing and never leave my side! I love You Lord!
