1375. Sorrow and care may meet

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

Refrain:
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 its raging flight;
Grief may oppress the soul
Throughout the weary night; [Refrain]

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