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.
