Lyrics

Let all them who trust Thy care
Ever glad and joyful be;
Let them joy who love Thy name,
Safely guarded, Lord, by Thee.

Refrain

Safely guarded, safely guarded,
Safely guarded, Lord, by Thee;
Safely guarded, safely guarded,
Safely guarded, Lord, by Thee.

For a blessing from Thy store
To the righteous Thou wilt yield;
Thou wilt compass them about
With Thy favor as a shield.
