1 Jesus keeps me, O how precious!
Sweet communion here have we;
O the perfect peace of dwelling,
I in Him, and He in me.

Jesus in my heart abiding,
O the taste of joy divine;
On His bosom safely hiding,
I am His, and He is mine.

2 Grace and mercy never ceasing,
He is shedding on my way;
He has made my heart His temple;
Life is richer day by day. [Refrain]

3 I am His, O blest assurance!
Burst, my soul, with rapture sweet;
He is mine, O wondrous story!
Love amazing, joy complete! [Refrain]
