Jesus, my Saviour! look on me - A Song in the Night
(Charlotte Elliott/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

A Song in the Night.

"Looking unto Jesus." (Hebrews 12,2)

1. Jesus, my Saviour! look on me,
  for I am weary and oppressed;
I come to cast my soul on thee:
  Thou art my rest.

2. Look down on me, for I am weak;
  I feel the toilsome journey's length;
thine aid omnipotent I seek:
  thou art my strength.

3. I am bewildered on my way;
  dark and tempestuous is the night;
oh shed thou forth some cheering ray!
  Thou art my light.

4. Why feel I desolate and lone?
  Thy praises should my thoughts employ;
thy presence can pour gladness down:
  thou art my joy.

5. When the accuser flings his darts
  I look to thee – my terrors cease –
thy cross a hiding-place imparts:
  thou art my peace.

6. Vain is all human help for me;
  I dare not trust an earthly prop;
my sole reliance is on thee:
  thou art my hope.

7. Full many a conflict must be fought,
  but shall I perish, shall I yield?
Is that bright motto given for nought,
  "Thou art my shield?"

8. Standing alone on Jordan's brink
  in that tremendous latest strife,
thou wilt not suffer me to sink:
  thou art my life.

9. Thou wilt my every want supply
  e'en to the end, whate'er befall;
through life, in death, eternally,
  thou art my all.
