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 be 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.
Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
mor 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,
rise to all eternity.
Words: Charles Wesley, 1740

The Fine Print
Google+ is a great place for Family Christian fans and customers to actively engage with us and each other. We welcome your views, comments and other “user content” including pictures or videos – but not to the detriment or disturbance of the community and its members. It would not be in the spirit of Family Christian or Google+ to prevent fans from interacting within this community. However, there will inevitably be a few individuals who, from time to time, may try to “cause a ruckus.” So, when we see ruckus-y behavior that’s potentially threatening to the Family Christian brand, Google+ community or individuals within it, in accordance with Google+'s Terms of Service, we will not hesitate to delete those comments. If an individual’s disruptive behavior persists, we may need to block that user from participating.
Family Christian is responsible for protecting the integrity of this community and ensuring our members an uplifting experience in a cuss-free/fuss-free environment. We ask that all comments and uploaded images remain both relevant and respectful to our community as a whole. Thank you for being a fan of Family Christian and for helping us to maintain the integrity of our page and message.
