16033. Safe In His Arms Today

1 Away from the fold, out in­to the cold,
As a lost sheep I wan­dered away;
Like a shep­herd so brave,
Jesus came and did save,
And I’m safe in His arms to­day.

Refrain:
I am safe in His arms to­day,
Jesus washed all my sins away;
By His death on the tree, full sal­va­tion is free,
And I’m safe in His arms to­day.

2 The bil­lows did roll, and trou­bled my soul,
I was tossed till my strength waned away;
Jesus walked on the sea,
Bringing sweet peace to me,
In His bo­som I rest to­day. [Refrain]

3 O sin­ner, come home, in dan­ger you roam;
You are tread­ing the broad down­ward way;
While the Sav­ior is near,
And His plead­ing you hear,
Come and rest in His arms to­day. [Refrain]
