Full Text

1 He that dwelleth in the secret of the Lord,
Shall abide in safety, sheltered from all harm;
Tho’ the storms above his soul should be outpoured,
Underneath him is the Saviour’s strong right arm.

He will hide me, safely hide me,
‘Neath the shadow of his wings he will hide me;
He will guide me, safely guide me,
Over life’s rugged way he will guide me.

2 When the enemy shall come in like a flood,
To despoil the blessed Spirit’s work divine,
Then a standard will be lifted, Jesus blood,
That doth cleanse and keep us, Lord, forever thine. [Refrain]

3 O what strength for warfare Christ to us imparts,
As in accents sweet we hear him gently say,
“Do not fear, my child, the tempter’s fiery darts,
For I’m unto thee a refuge all the way.” [Refrain]
