My heart is fixed on Jesus, the sun of all my thought;
What wondrous work of grace His love within my soul hath wrought!
He found me poor and helpless, by every sin oppressed,
And died that I might be redeemed, and have eternal rest.
My heart is fixed on Jesus, no other hope have I;
I could not live without Him, and without Him dare not die.
My heart is fixed on Jesus, without Him life is vain;
His promise is through all my days to comfort and sustain;
I love to hear Him whisper, “Be not afraid, ’tis I!”
As o’er the stormy sea I sail beneath a clouded sky.
My heart is fixed on Jesus, since I to Him belong,
For every day He gives me hope, for every night a song;
Through trial and deep water His promises are sweet,
And sheltered ’neath His wings of love I find a safe retreat.
