1 Amid the storm that sweeps,
Like billows o'er the soul;
I know that Jesus keeps,
That He has full control.

He keeps, He keeps, I know He does,
He holds by His pow'r;
He keeps, He saves, I know He does,
He's with me ev'ry hour.

2 I will not fear the deeps
Of darkness nor of pain;
I know that Jesus keeps,
I shall see light again. [Chorus]

3 There's for the eye that weeps,
A rest both sure and sweet;
I know that Jesus keeps,
I've found a safe retreat. [Chorus]

4 The death that onward creeps,
Has lost its sting for me;
I know that Jesus keeps,
His face at last I'll see. [Chorus]

5 And when I've climb'd the steeps
Of heaven's bright domain;
I'll sing that Jesus keeps,
With all the spotless train. [Chorus]
