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 me by His power;
He keeps, He saves, I know He does,
He’s with me every hour.

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

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. [Refrain]

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

5 And when I’ve climbed the steeps
Of Heaven’s bright domain,
I’ll sing that Jesus keeps,
With all the spotless train. [Refrain]
