When the early morning breaking, Slumber from my eyelids shaking, Comes the blessed thought with waking, I am in His keeping. Day advances, labor bringing, Care, her mantle ’round me flinging, Yet midst all my soul keeps singing, I am in His care.
Refrain: I am in my Father’s keeping, I am in His tender care; Whether waking, whether sleeping, I am in His care.
Sometimes dark clouds hang o’er me, Not one step I see before me, Still, my Savior, I adore Thee, I am in His keeping. I can trust His hand to guide me, ’Neath His wings He’ll safely hide me, And no harm can e’er betide me, I am in His care.
Gentle eventide is nearing, Light from heaven disappearing, Still the blessed thought so cheering, I am in His keeping. Now night’s curtains gather ’round me, Yet its dangers have not found me, For His angel guards surround me, I am in His care.
