284. Thou Hidden Source of Calm Repose

6-8s.
by C. Wesley

Thou hidden Source of calm repose!
 
Thou all-sufficient Love divine!
 
Our help and refuge from our foes,
 
Secure we are, for we are Thine;
 
And, lo! from guilt and grief and shame
 
We're hidden, Saviour, by Thy name.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
“<<To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.>> God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)
“And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:18)

Thy mighty name Salvation is,
 
And keeps our happy souls above;
 
Comfort it brings, and power and peace
 
And joy and everlasting love;
 
To us, with Thy dear name, are given
 
Pardon and holiness and heaven.
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)

Jesus, our all in all Thou art,
 
Our rest in toil, our ease in pain;
 
The medicine of a broken heart;
 
Mid storms, our peace; in loss, our gain;
 
Our smile beneath the tyrant's frown:
 
In shame, our glory and our crown.

In want, our plentiful supply;
 
In weakness, our almighty power;
 
In bonds, our perfect liberty;
 
Our refuge in temptation's hour;
 
Our comfort, midst all grief and thrall,
 
Our life in death, our all in all.
