Amid the storm that sweeps,
Like billows o’er the soul;
I know that Jesus keeps,
That He has full control.


He keeps, He keeps, I know He does,
He holds me by His power;
He keeps, He saves, I know He does,
He’s with me every hour.

I will not fear the deeps
Of darkness nor of pain;
I know that Jesus keeps,
I shall see light again.


There’s for the eye that weeps,
A rest both sure and sweet;
I know that Jesus keeps,
I’ve found a safe retreat.


The death that onward creeps,
Has lost its sting for me;
I know that Jesus keeps,
His face at last I’ll see.


And when I’ve climbed the steeps
Of Heaven’s bright domain,
I’ll sing that Jesus keeps,
With all the spotless train.
