Jesus, Fountain of my days

1
Jesus, Fountain of my days,
  Well-spring of my heart’s delight,
Brightness of my morning rays,
  Solace of my hours of night;
When I see Thee, I arise
To the hope of cloudless skies.
2
Oh, how weary were the years
  Ere Thy form to me was known;
Oh, how gloomy were the fears
  When I seemed to be alone;
I despaired the storm to brave
Till Thy footprints touched the wave.
3
But Thy presence on the deep
  Calmed the pulses of the sea,
And the waters sank to sleep
  In the rest of seeing Thee;
And my once rebellious will
Heard the mandate, Peace, be still!
4
Now Thy will and mine are one,
  Heart in heart, and hand in hand;
All the clouds have touched the sun,
  And the ships have reached the land;
For Thy love has said to me,
No more night! and No more sea!

For Thy love has said to me,

No more night! and no more sea!

When the Lord's love take full possession of us, He gently tells us that there's no more night, only light. No more stormy sea, only the New Jerusalem.
