As I walk in pastures green, By the crystal waters’ sheen, Jesus gives me from all sorrow and from care release; As a shepherd doth his sheep, He my soul doth ever keep, While I’m trusting I have perfect peace.
Refrain: Oh, He keepeth me in perfect peace, Yes, He keepeth me in perfect peace; While on Him my mind is stayed, I can never be afraid, For He keepeth me in perfect peace.
Dwelling in the secret place, Where I see my Father’s face, I have found a heav’nly refuge, and my troubles cease; In the shadow of His wings, How my happy spirit sings, For He keepeth me in perfect peace.
From temptation’s trying hour He will keep me by His pow’r, If I meekly all the mandates of His law obey; Since the blessed Savior came, In my heart with love aflame, Peace is reigning all along the way.
As the apple of His eye He will keep me till I die, For the One who watches o’er me never falls asleep; He surrounds me like a wall, Yes, He is my all in all, And my soul in perfect peace He’ll keep.
