He Hideth My Soul

Story | Bible Verse | Desktop Background


Fanny Crosby
William J. Kirkpatrick

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
A wonderful Savior to me;
He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock,
Where rivers of pleasure I see.


He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
That shadows a dry, thirsty land;
He hideth my life with the depths of His love,
And covers me there with His hand,
And covers me there with His hand.

A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord,
He taketh my burden away;
He holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved,
He giveth me strength as my day.


With numberless blessings each moment He crowns,

And filled with His fullness divine,
I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God
For such a Redeemer as mine!


When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise
To meet Him in clouds of the sky,
His perfect salvation, His wonderful love
Ill shout with the millions on high.



.....the next song carries on the theme of salvation, for Fanny knew it wasn't only the destitute Bowery dwellers who needed salvation. Although she had known Jesus from her childhood, it wasn't until the age of 31 that she considered herself truly converted. It happened this way:

With all of her apparent devotion to Christ already shared in so many ways, it is hard to believe that she was not converted until 1851, age 31. This glorious beginning happened at a revival service held at the old John Street Methodist Church in New York which she joined. Recalling the incident years later, she said:
"After a prayer was offered, they began to sing the grand old consecration hymn:

`Alas! And Did My Saviour Bleed?' and
when they reached the third line of the fifth stanza, `Here
Lord, I give myself away,' my very soul was flooded with celestial light."

She wrote of Jesus as a Saviour to herself, just as much as to anyone else. Notice in the hymn we call "He Hideth My Soul", that the first two stanzas begin with the words "A wonderful Saviour is Jesus my Lord."
