O Savior, thou art good to me.
Encircled in thine arms, I find
the salve for every weeping wound,
the balm to ease my troubled mind.
Thou lovest me through every trial
with grace sufficient for my needs.
Thou hast the power to heal the soul,
to soothe the aching heart that pleads.
Stay with me, Lord; embrace my woes.
I would not wander far from thee.
Thou art the Master of my soul,
my Shepherd for eternity.
“Therefore, treasure up these words in thy heart.
Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God,
and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love” (D&C 6:20).
