Representative Text

1 Thro’ all this world of sin and woe,
God will keep me true;
Whate’er may come I surely know
God will keep me true.

Refrain:
God will keep me true,
God will keep me true;
I know that He will see me thro’,
God will keep me true.

2 Should friends forsake and comforts flee,
God will keep me true;
There is a safe retreat for me,
God will keep me true. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ strength should fail and hopes decay,
God will keep me true;
Tho’ heav’n and earth should pass away,
God will keep me true. [Refrain]

4 Until I reign with Him on high,
God will keep me true;
And while the endless years go by,
God will keep me true. [Refrain]
