31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.(KJV)

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. 
Oh, receive my soul at last! 

2. 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. 

3. 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! 

4. 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. 

5. 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.
