Safe in Christ

Representative Text

1 Safe in Christ the weakest child
Stands in all God’s favor;
All in Christ are reconciled
Thro’ that only Savior.

Chorus:
Safe in Christ! safe in Christ!
He’s their glory ever;
None can pluck them from His hand,
They shall perish never.

2 Once their sins on ev’ry side
Seemed to tower o’er them;
Christ has stemmed the angry tide,
Been thro’ death before them. [Chorus]

3 On the resurrection side,
Death’s dark sea behind them;
All their sins beneath the tide,
None can ever find them. [Chorus]

4 Now by faith the justified
Know that God is for them;
To the world they’re crucified,
Glory is before them. [Chorus]
