Is There Not a Place for Me?, #5

Lyrics

Verse 1
Is there not a place for me,
Where no evil may o’ertake?
Did not Jesus, in his love,
Come and suffer for my sake?
In that haven of the soul,
Where no waves of trouble roll,
Is there not a place for me?

Chorus
In that haven of the soul,
Where no waves of trouble roll,
In that haven of the soul,
There will be a place for me.

Verse 2
Is there not a place for me,
Where temptations ne’er may try?
Did not Jesus on the cross,
Once for me redemption buy?
In that haven of the soul,
Where no waves of trouble roll,
Is there not a place for me?

Verse 3
Is there not a place for me,
When to earth I bid adieu?
Shall I not the saints behold,
And the holy angels, too?
In that haven of the soul,
Where no waves of trouble roll,
Is there not a place for me?
