Keep Me, Jesus, Keep Me
 
Waverley Turner Carmichael
 
 
KEEP me ’neath Thy mighty wing,
Keep me, Jesus, keep me;
Help me praise Thy Holy name,
Keep me, Jesus, keep me.
O my Lamb, come, my Lamb,        5
O my good Lamb,
Save me, Jesus, save me.
 
Hear me as I cry to Thee;
Keep me, Jesus, keep me;
May I that bright glory see;        10
Keep me, Jesus, keep me.
O my Lamb, my good Lamb,
O my good Lamb,
Keep me, Jesus, keep me.
