Guarded By My Fathers Love


Guarded by my Father’s love,
Guided by His hand above,
So I walk from day to day,
So I go my way
In His tender keeping, tried and sure,
Held by bonds of faith secure,
Ev’ry hour and ev’rywhere,
I’m safe in His care.

Chorus:
Safe, within His care,
Safe within His care,
Nothing can alarm me, no evil can harm me;
Safe within His care,
Safe within His care,
Sheltered by His mercy, and safe in His care.

Though the road be rough and steep,
Overcast by shadows deep,
Yet above, there meets my eye,
Sunlight from on high.
In the glory of my Father’s home,
Beckons me where’er I roam,
Bidding me remember there
I’m safe in His care. [Chorus]

Precious knowledge, truth divine,
How it fills this heart of mine,
Teaching me in peace to dwell,
Knowing all is well.
Since in hours of joy my Lord is here,
And in sorrow, doubly near,
Ev’ry day and ev’rywhere
I’m safe in His care. [Chorus]
