But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

1 Covered with feathers of mercy,
Covered with feathers of love,
Covered from all that might harm me,
Safe till God calls me above.
Under His wings I am trusting,
Under His wings do I hide;
Safe in this beautiful shadow
Let me forever abide.

2 Here is my refuge and covert,
Under the wings of my God;
Here am I peacefully resting,
Trusting His love and His rod.
Under the wings of His healing,
Under the wings of His might,
Keep me forever, dear Savior,
Sheltered by day and and by night.
