Representative Text

1 Kept from sin and Satan’s power,
Kept by Jesus every hour;
Kept for Him who lives for me,
Kept His messenger to be.

Jesus keeps me by His power;
Jesus keeps me every hour;
Jesus keeps me, yes, I know,
Therefore I can fear no foe.

2 Kept throughout each passing year
I shall be, so cannot fear;
Kept from every foe or harm,
Kept from all that would alarm. [Refrain]

3 Kept to live His life below,
Kept His praises here to show;
Kept from self—that evil thing,
Kept His wanderers home to bring. [Refrain]

4 Yes, I shall be kept, I know,
Therefore I can fear no foe;
Now I yield myself to Thee,
Jesus, Savior, keep Thou me. [Refrain]
