1 Sorrow and care may meet,
The tempest cloud may low’r,
The surge of sin may beat
Upon earth’s troubled shore;

God doth His own in safety keep,
He giveth His beloved sleep,
He giveth His beloved sleep.

2 The din of war may roll,
With all her raging flight,
Grief may oppress the soul,
Throughout the weary nigh; [Refrain]

3 In childhood’s winsome page,
In manhood’s joyous bloom,
In feebleness and age,
In death’s dark gathering gloom; [Refrain]
