Representative Text

1 Jehovah is my keeper,
What foe have I to fear?
He is my shield, my hiding place,
A blessed helper near;
When dangers press on every hand,
His grace enables me to stand.

Refrain:
My keeper forever is He,
My keeper forever is He;
In storm and in tempest
He holdeth me fast,
My keeper forever is He.

2 Jehovah is my keeper,
Secure He holds me fast,
Safe in the cleft within the rock,
While storms go sweeping past;
Within this holy hiding place
He saves and keeps me by His grace. [Refrain]

3 Jehovah is my keeper,
A mighty fortress He,
‘Gainst which the fiery gates of hell
Are hurled unceasingly;
Though Satan and His hosts assail,
God and His church shall yet prevail. [Refrain]

4 Jehovah is my keeper,
All glory to His name;
Unchanging through the changing years,
His grace is still the same.
He will my trusting soul defend
Until I reach my journey’s end. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
