Representative Text

1 In the time of peace and plenty,
When our hearts have known no fear,
Then our prospects all are centered,
In the Savior ever dear;
When the storms of life are raging,
And the waves do wildly toss;
“Peace be still” may we hear spoken,
From the shadow of the cross.

Refrain:
We will rest in the shadow,
We will rest in the shadow of the cross;
We will rest in the shadow,
In the shadow of the cross.

2 When temptation’s darts assail us,
And when conflicts reign within,
Let us then confide in Jesus,
Who can take away our sin;
When afflictions overtake us,
And our hearts do suffer loss;
Then it is we get our comfort,
In the shadow of the cross. [Refrain]

3 Storm or sunshine, light or darkness,
By our Savior may be blest,
Till at last we’re safely sheltered
In the everlasting rest.
So whate’er the day may bring us,
Earthly treasure, death or loss,
We will always find our Refuge,
In the shadow of the cross. [Refrain]
