I RUN TO CHRIST (By: Chris Anderson)

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.

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.

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.
