1. I run to Christ when chased by fear And find a refuge sure. “Believe in Me,” His voice I hear; His words and wounds secure. I run to Christ when torn by grief And find abundant peace. “I too had tears,” He gently speaks; Thus joy and sorrow meet.
2. I run to Christ when worn by life And find my soul refreshed. “Come unto Me,” He calls through strife; Fatigue gives way to rest. I run to Christ when vexed by hell And find a mighty arm. “The Devil flees,” the Scriptures tell; He roars, but cannot harm.
3. I run to Christ when stalked by sin And find a sure escape. “Deliver me,” I cry to Him; Temptation yields to grace. I run to Christ when plagued by shame And find my one defense. “I bore God’s wrath,” He pleads my case— My Advocate and Friend.
