Representative Text

1 In God I have found a retreat,
Where I can securely abide;
No refuge, no rest so complete,
And here I intend to reside.

Oh, what comfort it brings,
My soul sweetly sings,
I am safe from all danger,
While under His wings.

2 I dread not the terror by night,
No arrow can harm me by day;
His shadow has covered me quite,
My fears He has driven away. [Refrain]

3 The pestilence walking about,
When darkness has settled abroad,
Can never compel me to doubt
The presence and power of our Lord. [Refrain]

4 The wasting destruction at noon,
No fearful foreboding can bring;
With Jesus, my soul doth commune,
His perfect salvation I sing. [Refrain]

5 A thousand may fall at my side,
Ten thousand at my right hand;
Above me His wings are spread wide,
Beneath them in safety I stand. [Refrain]
