Representative Text

1 I care not what cometh of darkness or light;
Since Jesus is with me, it all will be right;
I’ve naught here to wish for whatever betide,
As closely I nestle by his loving side.

Refrain:
Under his wing,
Under his wing,
Close to his bleeding side;
My joyful heart will shout and sing,
While I may there abide.

2 Tho’ dark clouds may gather, and thunders may roll,
They cannot affright me, or darken my soul;
The light is within me and ever will shine,
While I look to Jesus and claim him as mine. [Refrain]

3 If Satan should tempt me and Earth’s treasures bring,
I’ll cling to my Saviour, my Captain and King;
His love is my refuge, His Word is my guide,
A light for my footsteps, a staff at my side. [Refrain]
