347. Under the Care of My God, The Almighty

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 hasteth to slay;
Fear not the pestilence walking in darkness,
Nor the destroyer that wasteth by day. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
