There is a spot to me more dear

� 2008 Carden's Design. All Rights Reserved.
There is a spot to me more dear
Than native vale or mountain,
A spot for which affection's tear
Springs grateful from its fountain.
'T is not where kindred souls abound
Though that on earth is heaven,
But where I first my Saviour found,
And felt my sins forgiven.

Hard was my toil to reach the shore,
Long tossed upon the ocean;
Above me was the thunder's roar,
Beneath, the waves' commotion.
Darkly the pall of night was thrown
Around me, faint with terror;
In that dark hour how did my goran
Ascend for years of error!

Sinking and panting as for breath,
I knew not help was near me,
And cried, "O save me, Lord, from death!
Immortal Jesus, hear me!"
Then, quick as thought, I felt him mine
My Saviour stood before me;
I saw his brightness round me shine,
And shouted, "Glory, glory!"

O sacred hour! O hallowed spot!
Where love divine first found me!
Wherever falls my distant lot,
My heart shall linger round thee!
And when from earth I rise to soar
Up to my home in heaven,
Down will I cast my eyes once more,
Where I was first forgiven.
