Representative Text

1 “Kept by His pow’r”—no human arm upholding,
No human hand outstretch’d to point the way;
But God’s great love, His feeble child enfolding,
Is all-sufficient for thy need each day.

Kept by the pow’r of God unto salvation,
Ready to be revealed, revealed in the latter day,
Kept by the pow’r of God unto salvation,
Ready to be revealed in the latter day.

2 “Kept by His pow’r”—when sun is brightly shining
And glory crowns thy pathway with its light;
“Kept by His pow’r”—when daylight is declining,
And length’ning shadows tell of coming night. [Refrain]

3 “Kept” when the world for Thee its smile is wreathing,
When skies are fair, and life with roses spread;
“Kept” when its frown to Thee it is bequeathing
And clouds are massing darkly over head. [Refrain]

4 His pow’r to keep is strong and true as ever,
No length of years can e’er its force abate;
His will to keep can never fail—no, never;
While Mercy stands at heav’n’s wide-open gate. [Refrain]
