When st.1 refers to a mother hen gathering her chicks, we will find the same in Matthew 23:37 and Luke 13:34.
The reference to God’s “wings” in st.1 is found also in Exodus 19:4 and Deuteronomy 32:11.
The account of Jesus’ efforts to call the twelve to their last meal is found in John 13:1ff.
You will also find a number of similar references in the Psalms. See Psalm17:8, 36:7, 57:1, 61:4, 63:7 and 91:4.
The spirit of this song can come only from those who thankfully receive each day as a gift from God’s hand. Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 44 teaches, “Life is a gift from God’s hand” which we receive thankfully “with reverence for the Creator...” (paragraph 44).
The call for God’s help in our daily living arises from those who are confident of his fatherly care; consider reading Belgic Confession, Article 13 and Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 9, Question and Answer 26.
