Even to your old age I am He; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.@Isaiah 46:4

Safe in Jehovah’s keeping,
Led by His glorious arm,
God is Himself my refuge,
A present help from harm.
Fears may at times distress me,
Griefs may my soul annoy;
God is my strength and portion,
God my exceeding joy.

Refrain

Safe in Jehovah’s keeping,
Led by His glorious arm,
God is Himself my refuge,
A present help from harm.

Safe in Jehovah’s keeping,
Safe in temptation’s hour,
Safe in the midst of perils,
Kept by almighty power.
Safe when the tempest rages,
Safe though the night be long;
E’en when my sky is darkest
God is my strength and song.

Refrain

Sure is Jehovah’s promise,
Naught can my hope assail;
Here is my soul’s sure anchor,
Entered within the veil.
Blest in His love eternal,
What can I want beside!
Safe through the blood that cleanseth,
Safe in the Christ that died.

Refrain
