Representative Text

1 He shall cover thee here with His feathers,
And under His wings shalt thou trust;
He’ll give thee long life and true pleasure,
He keepeth the path of the just.

Refrain:
He shall cover thee, He shall cover thee,
And under His wings shalt thou trust;
He shall cover thee, He shall cover thee,
And under His wings shalt thou trust.

2 Not a fear should creep over our being,
For He guardeth well the heart-door,
Works all for our good in foreseeing,
And thus we have naught to deplore. [Refrain]

3 Not a dart from the foe can e’er pierce us
While hid in our Savior so dear;
Then let us be bold and courageous,
For in Him there’s nothing to fear. [Refrain]

4 Not a safer retreat can be offered,
God’s word is His power to me,
And in it thro’ Christ He has proffered
The grace all must have to be free. [Refrain]
