Author: Anon. Appears in 44 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1 When, along life's thorny road,
Faints the soul beneath the load;
When, by cares and sins oppressed,
Earth affords no peace or rest;
When the wily tempter's near,
Filling us with doubt and fear,
Jesus, to thy cross we flee;
Jesus, we will look to thee.
2 Thou, our Saviour, from the throne,
List'nest to thy people's moan;
Thou, the living Head, dost share
Every pang thy members bear.
Full of tenderness thou art;
Thou wilt heal the broken heart;
Full of power, thine arm shall quell
All the rage and might of hell.
3 Mighty to redeem and save,
Thou hast overcome the grave;
Thou the bars of death hast riven,
Opened wide the gates of heaven.
Soon in glory thou shalt come,
Taking thy poor pilgrims home;
Jesus, then we all shall be,
Ever, ever, Lord with thee. Topics: The Christian Warfare and Pilgrimage Used With Tune: COME HOME
