When The Storms Of Life Assail Me


When the storms of life assail me, and my vessel’s tempest-tossed,
With the world arrayed against me, all my hopes seem crushed and lost;
There is One who ne’er forgets me, One who hears my faintest cry,
He has promised that He’ll keep me as the apple of His eye.

Refrain:
He will keep me, safely keep me,
He will keep me as the apple of His eye;
He will keep me, safely keep me,
He will keep me for the meeting in the sky.

Some may trust in horse and chariot, some may make of flesh their arm,
Others lean to worldly wisdom, till awakened in alarm;
But the souls who trust in Jesus, daily drawing new supply,
Momentarily He’ll keep them as the apple of His eye [Refrain]

Oh, the many difficulties, heavy cares and anxious thought,
Of the soul who works and struggles for a crown that comes to naught;
Weak and weary, heavy-laden, rest He gives, and tears He’ll dry,
Naught can harm, for He will keep them as the apple of His eye. [Refrain]

As the roe upon the mountain, as the conqu’ring heroes come,
We will leap, and shout the vict’ry, all along our journey home;
Looking ever unto Jesus, who, at God’s right hand on high,
Sounds the promise “I will keep thee as the apple of mine eye.” [Refrain]

In the secret place I’m dwelling, in His shadow I abide,
I have made the Lord my refuge, ‘neath His wings I trust and hide;
Tho’ the terror comes at nightfall, tho’ at noon the arrows fly,
Fearing not, for He will keep me as the apple of His eye. [Refrain]
