1 I am walking where the shadow
Of Jehovah falls around,
And the way I follow, homeward,
By His grace is holy ground;
I can see afar the brightness
Where His glories kiss the lea,—
And His wings, above the valley,
Temper ev’rything to me.
O, the gladness of abiding
Underneath the Living Word!
O, the blessedness of hiding
In the shadow of the Lord!

2 I am dwelling in the shadow
Of the Lord with great delight,—
Where the fountains of His favor
Flow in fulness, day and night;
Where the mountains of His mercy
Safely shelter me from sin,
And my Father’s warder angels
Fortify and wall me in.
O, the safety of abiding
Underneath the Living Word!
O, the blessedness of hiding
In the shadow of the Lord!

3 I am resting in His shadow
Tho’ the burdens press me down;
Peace in tumult, joy in sorrow,
Are my aftermath and crown;
He my refuge is and fortress
And whatso to me doth come
Is an Angel of redemption
To allure and lead me home.
O, the sweetness of abiding
Underneath the Living Word!
O, the blessedness of hiding
In the shadow of the Lord!

4 From the shadow, in the portal
Where I walk with Him by faith,
I shall some day pass, immortal,
Up the ransomed way of Death;
He is mine; my God, forever;
I am Him; my fears remove;
For my need He faileth, never,
In the secret place of love.
O, the glory of abiding
Underneath the Living Word!
O, the blessedness of hiding
In the shadow of the Lord!
