“He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”
“Under His Wings”
Hymn by William Cushing and Ira Sankey
Under His wings I am safely abiding,
Though the night deepens and tempests are wild,
Still I can trust Him – I know He will keep me,
He has redeemed me, and I am His child.
Under His wings, under His wings,
Who from His love can sever?
Under His wings my soul shall abide,
Safely abide forever.
Under His wings, what a refuge in sorrow!
How my heart yearningly turns to His rest!
Often when earth has no balm for my healing,
There I find comfort, and there I am blessed.
Under His wings, oh, what precious enjoyment!
There will I hide till life’s trials are o’er;
Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me,
Resting in Jesus, I’m safe evermore.
God’s “faithful promises are [our] armor and protection.” Each Friday, starting September 16th, I’ll be posting a verse/passage giving us a faithful promise from God!
