1 Jesus keeps forever,
I shall not be moved;
He forsakes, no, never,
I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.

Refrain:
I shall not be, I shall not be moved,
I shall not be, I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.

2 On His strength depending,
I shall not be moved;
And His cause defending,
I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved. [Refrain]

3 His, the love enfolding,
I shall not be moved;
His, the grace upholding,
I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved. [Refrain]

4 Friend so high and holy,
I shall not be moved;
Friend so meek and lowly,
I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved. [Refrain]

5 From the Bible story
I shall not be moved;
Living for His glory,
I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved. [Refrain]

6 With the faithful going,
I shall not be moved;
All His goodness knowing,
I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved. [Refrain]

7 By His truth I’m standing,
I shall not be moved;
Doing His commanding,
I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that’s planted by the water,
I shall not be moved. [Refrain]
