1 In the shadow of thy wings, dearest Saviour,
Shall the weary and the weak find rest,
While the waves are dashing high we are hiding
In the shelter of thy love so blest.

Refrain:
Hiding, blessed hiding,
In the shelter of thy love so blest;
Hiding, we are hiding
While the waves are dashing high we have rest.

2 In the shadow of thy wings, dearest Saviour,
There's a peaceful rest so calm and sweet;
There is rest for all the weary and wayworn,
In thy love there is a joy complete. [Refrain]

3 There is rest, yes, sweetest rest, dearest Saviour,
'Neath the shadow of thy wings for all;
There is room for each and all of thy children
Who will listen to thy loving call. [Refrain]

4 In the shadow of thy wings there is resting,
With the sorrows of our earth-life o'er;
We shall rest with thee, O Lord, then forever,
And we'll meet the loved ones gone before. [Refrain]
