Full Text

1 How safe is the soul that abides in the Lord,
Securely from sin hid away;
His anchor the promise of God’s written word,
To keep him by night and by day.

That wicked one toucheth him not,
That wicked one toucheth him not;
He keepeth himself in the love of the Lord,
And that wicked one toucheth him not.

2 How firm the foundation upon which he builds
A structure to glorify God!
How wondrous the pow’r of the Savior that shields
From all the vile tempter’s dark flood. [Refrain]

3 A wall of salvation upon every side,
Strong bulwarks presents to the foe;
And in every conflict though sorely he’s tried,
Faith’s shield will ward off every blow. [Refrain]

4 He trusts in the Lord and obeys His commands,
God giveth him grace from on high
To count all things joyful while boldly he stands,
And Jesus, his helper, is nigh. [Refrain]
