Representative Text

1 Keep close to the side of Jesus
While the path of life you tread;
Resist all the world’s temptations,
And by Him be safely led.

Refrain:
Keep close to the side of Jesus,
He’s a true and loving friend;
Keep close to the side of Jesus
Till you reach your journey’s end.

2 Secure in the Savior’s keeping,
Naught of harm can you betide,
And joy fills the soul that ever
In His presence doth abide. [Refrain]

3 Sweet peace from on high is given
Unto those who day by day
Keep close to the blessèd Jesus,
And His holy will obey. [Refrain]
