Representative Text

1 Secure in his keeping, who guideth my way,
Who turneth the shadows of night into day;
The word that he utters, no ill can withstand,
He holdeth the waters within his own hand.

Refrain:
Secure, secure,
Secure while ages endure.
My title in love is written above,
For he is almighty to save;
Secure, secure,
Secure while ages endure.
My title in love is written above,
For he is almighty to save.

2 Secure in his keeping, who died for my sin,
Who suffered on Calv’ry, a sinner to win;
Who rising in triumph o’er sin and the grave,
For me intercedeth, almighty to save. [Refrain]

3 Secure in his keeping, tho' foes may surround,
The grace of my Saviour much more will abound;
Then forth to his service, I’ll cheerfully go,
The work he will prosper, the path he will show. [Refrain]

4 Secure, when the shadows of evening shall fall,
Still trusting in Jesus, I’ll answer his call;
I’ll sing ‘mid the angels, in yonder bright sphere,
“He saved me, he kept me, that’s why I am here.” [Refrain]
