7023. Under His Wings

1. 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.

2. Under His wings, what a refuge in sorrow!
How the heart yearningly turns to His rest!
Often when earth has no balm for my healing,
There I find comfort, and there I am blessed. [Refrain]

3. 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. [Refrain]

Notes: As Mr. Moody used to ap­proach the sem­in­a­ry build­ing at North­field, Mass­a­chu­setts, to con­duct the morn­ing wor­ship, the young la­dies there would join in the sing­ing of this hymn as he en­tered the room. It was one of their pop­u­lar hymns, as it was al­so of the Es­tey Quar­tet made up of the lead­ing sing­ers of the sem­in­a­ry. The mu­sic of this hymn was among my lat­er com­po­si­tions. Sankey, p. 292
