Representative Text

1 In the dawn of morning,
At the evening hour,
Jesus keeps me safely
By his mighty pow’r.
Trav’ling over mountains,
Or on the rolling sea,
Jesus keeps me safely,
Happy as can be.

Jesus keeps me safely
All my journey thro’;
Jesus keeps me safely,
Doth my strength renew.

2 Tho’ the waves of sorrow
Come and sweep my soul,
Jesus keeps me safely
From the treach’rous shoal.
Or, if sore temptation
It is my lot to bear,
Jesus keeps me safely,
Carries all my care. [Chorus]

3 If amid life’s pleasure
Or the marts of trade,
Jesus keeps me safely
I am not afraid.
Since I’ve all forsaken,
And laid my burden down,
Jesus keeps me safely,
He’ll my efforts crown. [Chorus]
