Lelia N. Morris (1862–1929)



When the tem­pests rage and the storms beat high,
There is re­fuge near, and a shel­ter nigh;
He who calmed the winds and the roll­ing wave
Is Je­ho­vah still, and is strong to save.


Mighty to save and strong to de­liv­er,
Jesus is mighty to save;
Mighty to save and strong to de­liv­er,
Jesus is migh­ty to save.

Not a cloud so dark, but His love shines thro’,
Not a shade so deep but His face we view;
For His arm is strong, and His heart is kind,
All who in Him trust shall a Sav­ior find.


Not a tear drop falls but the Sav­ior knows,
And His great heart throbs with our bit­ter woes;
For He knows our flesh and our fee­ble frame,
Every pang we feel, He has known the same.


Never yet in vain has a sin­ner cried,
Never yet in vain was the blood ap­plied;
Whosoever will may in Him be blest,
Whosoever will find a per­fect rest.
