Safe in the arms of Jesus

Safe in the arms of Jesus,
  Safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o'ershaded,
  Sweetly my soul doth rest.
Hark! 'tis a song of heaven
  Borne in the sweetest voice,
Echoed by saints in spirit,
  Making my heart rejoice.
  Safe in the arms of Jesus,
  Safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o'ershaded,
    Sweetly my soul doth rest.
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
  Safe from corroding care,
Safe from the world's temptations,
  Sin cannot harm me there.
Free from the blight of sorrow,
  Free from my doubts and fears;
Only a few more trials,
  Only a few more tears.
Jesus, my heart's dear Refuge,
  Jesus has died for me;
Firm on the Rock of Ages
  Ever my trust shall be.
Here let me wait with patience,
  Wait till the night is o'er,
Wait till I see the morning
  Break on the golden shore.

There is a place of quiet rest,

Near to the heart of God!

No other place is safe except with Jesus Christ. He's my refuge and I'm glad He's mine always by my side. I have no fears

🙌🏼 Safe in His arms

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:37-39‬ ‭KJV‬‬


Keep me resting keep me trusting keep me praising keep me loving you dear Lord!

The words of this song came to me as we were reading our devotional for the day! I couldn't remember all the words--only the chorus! I looked thru my hymnals and could not find it. Was so happy to find it here so I could sing the whole song! Thank You! So often words of songs long forgotten come to me as I am reading scripture and give me solace. Songs that were learned as children are so important because they come to you when you need them.

I was praying with my wife and worshipping The Lord as the air is filled with the pandemic shocks, suddenly this song burst through my mouth. I became completely at rest, because I realized The Holt Spirit thrust this song on us to know that The Lord Jesus has been in control and we need not fear. Later, I took time to review all words of the song. How glorious they are?

In the midst of raging Corona virus, the Lord lay this song on my heart today. Great emphasis on stanza 3

" Wait till the night is o’er,

Wait till I see the morning".

Safe in the arms of Jesus.

Evangelist Jordan

Pittsburg, CA, United States

I was atheist, but JESUS saved me in 1972 according to John 16:24! After I'd been washed by reading Matthew, Mark, Luke and into John; I prayed "FATHER touch me, in the name of JESUS!" With that prayer, PAPA GOD sent HOLY GHOST down into my heart! GLORY! I woke up Christmas Morning BORN AGAIN! HALLELUJAH! Early today, HOLY GHOST was singing to me the first verse of this song, so I looked it up! Thank you! PRAISE GOD! JESUS is coming again SOON! AMEN!

Heard this hymns in one of the Mary McKee's albums in 1989 after given my life to Christ. It is inspiring and an encouraging.

Do not consider this as a hymn used during a funeral. Do not wait until you die to enjoy the arms of Jesus when you can enjoy them today. The hymns we sing in the home meetings need not be fully in line with the fellowship in the meeting. Do not be legal. The hymns we select depend fully on whether we have the Spirit or not. If in your daily life you let the Lord make home in you, and if you are being transformed into His image by beholding His glory with unveiled face, then He will lead you. You will sense the nourishing and comforting within. The Lord may give you a hymn. Then you come to the meeting. You may be the first one in the meeting, but you do not need to wait for others. You just begin to sing, "Safe in the arms of Jesus...." As you sing you bring the spiritual atmosphere into the meeting. Those who come later will join the singing and the meeting will begin spontaneously.
