Are you now in depths


    • Are you now in depths of sorrow, 
    • where no arm can reach so low? 
    • There is One whose arms almighty 
    • reach beyond your deepest woe. 
    • God the Eternal is your refuge. 
    • Let it still your wild alarms; 
    • underneath your deepest sorrow 
    • are the everlasting arms. 

    • Other arms grow faint and weary, 
    • these can never faint nor fail: 
    • others reach our mounts of blessing, 
    • these our lowest, loneliest vale. 
    • Oh, that all might know His friendship! 
    • Oh, that all might see His charms! 
    • Oh, that all might have beneath them 
    • Jesus‟ everlasting arms! 

    • Underneath us, oh, how easy! 
    • We have not to mount on high, 
    • but to sink into His fullness, 
    • and in trustful weakness lie. 
    • And we find our humbling failures 
    • save us from the strength that harms, 
    • we may fail, but underneath us 
    • are the everlasting arms. 

    • Arms of Jesus! fold me closer 
    • to Thy strong and loving breast, 
    • till my spirit on Thy bosom 
    • finds its everlasting rest; 
    • and when time‟s last sands are sinking, 
    • shield my heart from all alarms
