Verse 3: [Chords as Verse 2]
Wilt Thou not regard my call?
Wilt Thou not accept my prayer?
Lo, I sink, I faint, I fall.

Reach me out Thy gracious hand
While I of Thy strength receive,
Hoping against hope I stand,
Dying and behold I live.  [to Verse 4]

  Thou, O Christ, art all I want,

  Raise the fallen,  cheer the faint,

  Heal the   sick and lead the blind.
G♯
  Just and holy is Thy name,
D♯
  I am all unrighteousness.
A♯sus4       A♯
  False and  full of sin I am,
G♯         A♯
  Thou art full of truth and grace. [to Verse 5]

  Plenteous grace with Thee is found,

  Grace to cover all my sin.

  Let the healing streams abound;
G♯         Gsus4
  Make and keep me pure within.
G♯
  Thou of life the fountain art,
D♯
  Freely let me take of Thee.
A♯sus4
  Spring Thou up within my heart
G♯                 A♯ 
  And rise to all eternity, [Sing 4x]

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

 

Other refuge have I none hangs my helpless soul on Thee

Leave ah 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

 

Wilt Thou not regard my call wilt Thou not accept my prayer

Lo I sink I faint I fall lo on Thee I cast my care

Reach me out Thy gracious hand while I of Thy strength receive

Hoping against hope I stand dying and behold I live

 

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

False and full of sin I am Thou art full of truth and grace

 

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 and rise to all eternity

And rise to all eternity

And rise to all eternity
