Representative Text

1 He that has God his guardian made
Shall under the Almighty's shade
Secure and undisturb'd abide:
Thus to my soul of Him I'll say,
He is my fortress and my stay,
My God, in Whom I will confide.

2 His tender love and watchful care
Shall free thee from the fowler's snare,
And from the noisome pestilence;
He over thee His wings shall spread,
And cover thy unguarded head;
His truth shall be thy strong defence.

3 Because, with well-placed confidence,
Thou mak'st the Lord thy sure defence,
thy refuge, even god most high;
Therefore no ill on thee shall come,
Nor to thy heaven-protected home
Shall overwhelming plagues draw nigh.
