Christ the Keeper of his Saints. Ps. 121. 5; John 6. 39

R. Burnham   C.M.

1
Christ is the Keeper of his saints,
He guards them by his power;
Subdues their numerous complaints,
In every gloomy hour.

2
What though they fear each dread alarm,
Tried, and severely tossed;
Held by the Saviour’s mighty arm,
None, none can e’er be lost.

3
He’ll lead them on fair Zion’s road,
Though weary, weak, and faint;
For O! they ne’er shall lose their God,
Or God e’er lose a saint.

4
How sure his great salvation shines;
How full the vast reward;
How firm the promise e’er remains:
How faithful is the Lord!
