1 Safe in the love of Jesus,
Trusting his tender care;
Always from harm and danger
He will protect me there.

Safe, I am safe,
I am safe in the love of Jesus;
Safe, I am safe,
Yes, I’m safe in the love of Jesus.

2 He is my soul’s strong fortress,
In him I will abide;
Ne’er can my foes molest me
While in his love I hide. [Refrain]

3 Safe from the luring tempter,
Safe from his blighting pow’r;
Kept in the love of Jesus,
Safe is my soul each hour. [Refrain]

4 Sheltered, I fear no evil,
Love is my shield and stay;
Guarded are all my footsteps,
I shall not go astray. [Refrain]

5 Safe to my home in heaven
I shall be brought at last:
Love shall not fail to keep me
Till all life’s storms are past. [Refrain]
