1 He, who safely keepeth,
Slumbers not, nor sleepeth;
Tho’ by all the world forsaken,
Wherefore should I fear?
That which He hath spoken
Never can be broken;
Who shall harm the trusting heart
When He is near?

2 He will keep me ever,
Where no pow’r can sever
From my heart, the love that hides me,
In His secret place.
There in faith abiding,
All to Him confiding,
Thro’ His spirit I am seal’d
An heir of grace.

3 He will keep me ever;
Like a gentle river
Peace from Him, my Lord and Saviour,
Comes with joy to me;
In its quiet flowing,
Life and health bestowing,
Till within the gates of pearl
The King I see!
