When the storm winds rage, and the rain falls fast, And the clouds hang low above, I shall be secure till the storm is past, For I trust my Savior’s love; And He knows the way, and He holds my hand, And He will not let it go; He will lead me home to that better land, Just because He loves me so.
It was not that I was so good or great, For my heart was vile with sin; I had turned my back on the narrow gate, Neither care nor lived for Him, But I pleased myself, and I chose my way, For His grace I did not know; But He sought me still through the night and day, Just because He loved me so.
If He loved me so when I grieved Him sore That He sought me tenderly, Till He won my heart, and my sins He bore, So that I His child might be, Will He love me less since I love Him, too, So my heart with fervor glows? And I haste each day all His will to do That my willing spirit knows.
I will trust His love, for it e’er will last, It is rich and warm and free; Through the years of life it will hold me fast, And my help and comfort be; To my waiting heart all its treasures rare As a sparkling stream shall flow; In the joy of God I shall ever share, Just because He loves me so.
