16050. Jesus Keeps The Heart Right

1 Jesus is the sin­ner’s friend,
One on whom he may de­pend,
He has nev­er failed to cleanse from guilt and woe;
If we trust His ho­ly name,
We shall not be put to shame,
Jesus keeps the heart right, ev­ery­where we go.

Jesus keeps the heart right,
The temp­ter can­not lead my soul astray;
Jesus keeps the heart right,
Yes, the Sav­ior keeps the heart right all the day.

2 Thro’ the sha­dow and the strife,
Thro’ the chang­ing scenes of life,
With this Friend to guide me, I shall nev­er fail;
All I need when sore­ly tried,
Is to keep close to His side,
Jesus keeps the heart right, sin can­not pre­vail. [Refrain]

3 Some day, in the realms above,
I shall see the King I love
And be­hold the man­sion build­ed there for me;
Clothed in glo­ry made com­plete,
I shall sit at Je­sus’ feet,
For He keeps the heart right, thro’ eter­ni­ty. [Refrain]
