L.M.

1
Jesus! before Thy face we fall,
 
Our Lord, our life, our hope, our all;
 
For we have nowhere else to flee;
 
No Sanctuary, Lord, but Thee.
Isaiah 8:14; Colossians 1:27; Ephesians 3:11; Colossians 3:11; Colossians 3:4; John 6:68; Isaiah 8:14
2
In Thee we every glory view,
 
Of safety, strength, and beauty too;
 
'Tis all our rest and peace to see
 
Our Sanctuary, Lord, in Thee.
Psalm 4:8; Psalm 18:1; Psalm 27:4
3
Whatever foes or fears betide,
 
In Thy blest presence let us hide;
 
And while we rest our souls on Thee,
 
Thou shalt our Sanctuary be.
Psalm 31:20
4
Through time, with all its changing scenes,
 
And all the grief that intervenes,
 
Let this support each fainting heart,
 
That Thou our Sanctuary art.
1 Corinthians 7:31; Psalm 31:10; Hebrews 12:3
