Lyrics

The Sav­ior’s arms are op­ened wide,
He shields from the storms of life;
We fear no ill when by His side,
He shields from the storms of life.

Refrain

He shields from the storms of life,
He shields from the storms of life;
We’ll praise Him with an end­less song,
He shields from the storms of life.

No matter where His hand may lead,
He shields from the storms of life;
His lov­ing care sup­plies our need,
He shields from the storms of life.

Refrain

Though oft our steps have gone as­tray,
He shields from the storms of life;
He brought us to the nar­row way,
He shields from the storms of life.

Refrain

He is our lov­ing guide and friend,
He shields from the storms of life;
He’ll safe­ly keep us to the end,
He shields from the storms of life.
