1 He keepeth me, ever,
Where’er be the place!
I’ve only to ask it—
Most wonderful grace!
Tho’ sorest temptations,
My spirit may try,
I know my Redeemer
Will ever be nigh!

He keepeth me, ever!
His love endeth never!
From Him naught shall sever!
He keepeth my soul!

2 He keepeth me, ever,
With tenderest care!
I’ve only to ask Him
My burdens to bear!
A word of His promise,
He never will break!
Whoever may leave me,
He ne’er will forsake! [Refrain]

3 He keepeth me, ever,
From yielding to dread;
Tho’ darkness be ‘round me,
And clouds overhead!
He stilleth my doubtings,
He lightens my grief!
I’ve only to trust Him—
He’ll give me relief! [Refrain]
