In His Pavilion Hiding

Representative Text

1. In his pavilion hiding,
A refuge I have found,
When clouds of trouble gather,
Or storms of life abound.

O Christ, my only refuge,
Thy name I will adore,
For in thy blest pavilion
I'm safe forevermore.

2. In his pavilion hiding,
When foes my faith assail,
No pow'r of hell can ever
Against my soul prevail.

3. In his pavilion hiding,
My trusting soul is blest;
And in his secret presence
Is everlasting rest.

4. In his pavilion hiding,
More safe I could not be;
For in the sorest conflict,
Love's wings are over me.
