No matter what happens in my life,
Sorrow or joy, rain or shine,
Whatever befalls me, it's all right
Because in Jesus I abide.

With His presence, He shelters me
From many dangers all too real.

Over steep hill and stormy sea.

In the midst of pain and hurt,
When I feel confused and stirred,
To Jesus I can always turn
And find solace in His Word.

His is the only voice I hear,
So familiar and so dear.
I know that I can trust in Him,
So to Him alone I cling.

Jesus keeps me from going astray;
I'll always follow in His way.
Forever loved, secure and safe,
I stand in His amazing grace.
