Representative Text

1 Out in the conflict, pressed by temptation,
Fighting with evil, perilous hour;
Jesus will keep me, He’s my salvation,
“Faith is the vict’ry,” kept by His pow’r.

Kept by His pow’r
Marvelous pow’r,
Trusting in Jesus
Jesus alone;
Kept by His pow’r
Marvelous pow’r,O how He loveth and keepeth His own.

2 Close to my Savior, sweetly abiding,
Whether He sends me sunshine or show’r;
In His own promise, humbly confiding,
Here is my safety, kept by His pow’r! [Refrain]

3 Gracious protection, wonderful blessing!
Christ is my Refuge, Covert and Tow’r!
Weakness and failure meekly confessing,
Saved by His mercy, kept by His pow’r! [Refrain]

4 Looking to Jesus, trusting, obeying,
Blooms in my pathway joy’s brightest flow’r;
Ransomed from bondage, rescued from straying,
His all the glory, kept by His pow’r! [Refrain]
