Representative Text

1 Happy in Jesus’ love, I’m abiding,
Sheltered within the fold all the day,
Happy in Jesus’ love, safely hiding,
Under His wings I’ll work, watch, and pray.

Hiding, Hiding,
Under His wings I’ll work, watch and pray,
Hiding, safely hiding,
And walking by faith the King’s highway.

2 Sheltered within the fold, safely resting,
There on His breast sweet comfort receive,
Knowing full well that I Heav’ns richest blessing,
Cometh to all who trust and believe. [Refrain]

3 Happy in Jesus’ love, trusting, knowing,
Filled with a hope that Faith gives to me,
Soon I will be with Jesus forever
Chanting the song of Heav’ns victory. [Refrain]
