307. Under the Care of My God

1. Under the care of my God, the Almighty,
Safe in the secret place of the Most High!
He is my refuge, the Lord is my fortress,
Him I am trusting when trouble is nigh.

Under his wings, under His wings,
Safe in the refuge hide thee;
Trusting His truth and faithfulness,
No evil can betide thee.

2. Be not afraid for the terror of midnight,
Nor for the arrow that hateth to slay;
Fear not the pestilence walking in darkness,
Nor the destroyer that wasteth by day. [Chorus]

3. Seek the Most High for thy sure habitation,
Unto Jehovah for refuge now fly:
There shall no evil befall thee nor harm thee,
Unto thy dwelling no plague shall come nigh. [Chorus]

4. Love thou the Lord, surely He will deliver;
He will exalt thee and answer thy prayer;
He will be with thee to honor and give thee
Life without end, His salvation to share. [Chorus]
