When the storms of life assail me

Full Text

1 When the storms of life assail me, and my vessel’s tempest-tossed,
With the world arrayed against me, all my hopes seem crushed and lost;
There is One who ne’er forgets me, One who hears my faintest cry,
He has promised that He’ll keep me as the apple of His eye.

Refrain:
He will keep me, safely keep me,
He will keep me as the apple of His eye;
He will keep me, safely keep me,
He will keep me for the meeting in the sky.

2 Some may trust in horse and chariot, some may make of flesh their arm,
Others lean to worldly wisdom, till awakened in alarm;
But the souls who trust in Jesus, daily drawing new supply,
Momentarily He’ll keep them as the apple of His eye [Refrain]

3 Oh, the many difficulties, heavy cares and anxious thought,
Of the soul who works and struggles for a crown that comes to naught;
Weak and weary, heavy-laden, rest He gives, and tears He’ll dry,
Naught can harm, for He will keep them as the apple of His eye. [Refrain]

4 As the roe upon the mountain, as the conqu’ring heroes come,
We will leap, and shout the vict’ry, all along our journey home;
Looking ever unto Jesus, who, at God’s right hand on high,
Sounds the promise “I will keep thee as the apple of mine eye.” [Refrain]

5 In the secret place I’m dwelling, in His shadow I abide,
I have made the Lord my refuge, ‘neath His wings I trust and hide;
Tho’ the terror comes at nightfall, tho’ at noon the arrows fly,
Fearing not, for He will keep me as the apple of His eye. [Refrain]
