I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living. Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me. (Psalm 142:4-7)

Listen to the hymn melody
O my blessed, blessed Jesus,
Lone companion of my soul,
In all worries, tribulations,
Give my spirit thy support;
While I’m cast upon life’s ocean,
On the sea’s unstable waves,
Steadfastly, O hold and keep me
In thine all embracing arms.

Let me tread where’er I wander
On this ever moving earth,
All the land beneath me trembles,
Dust and ruins all around;
If I could but keep my foothold
Despite tempest, despite storm,
On the eternal Rock of Ages:
This the ground that never quakes.

Oft times leaning on my dear ones,
Then I lose them one by one;
Lean again on friends, companions,
Very soon they’re also gone:
Lean on pleasure-none is stable,
All my word, it changes so,
Lean on Jesus – here is true strength
Which will hold the world’s whole weight.
