1 I am not only saved from sin,
God keep me, He keep me;
From ev’ry stain without within,
He keep me, He keeps me.

Refrain:
He keeps me, O yes He keeps me,
With perfect vict’ry in my soul;
He keeps me, O yes he keeps me,
Tho’ raging billows round me roll;
He’s with me, will not forsake me,
My heart shall know no fear, alarm;
No danger or fear of falling,
While in His everlasting arm.

2 From stumbling in the narrow way,
God keep me, He keep me;
While I His blessed voice obey,
He keep me, He keeps me. [Refrain]

3 From list’ning to the tempter’s voice,
God keep me, He keep me;
From making paths of sin my choice,
He keep me, He keeps me. [Refrain]

4 Beneath the precious cleansing blood,
God keep me, He keep me;
I will to Him my all confide,
He keep me, He keeps me. [Refrain]

5 With blessed precious perfect love,
God keep me, He keep me;
Till I am called to Heav’n above,
He will keep me, He will keep me. [Refrain]
