Representative Text

1 My hope is in Thy promise, Lord,
My trust in Thy unfailing word,
My heart in sweet content will sing,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing.

Chorus:
Oh gracious Lord ‘tis sweet, ‘tis sweet to be,
Thro’ ev’ry change so near, so near to Thee,
My heart in sweet content will sing,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing.

2 Tho’ wave on wave of sorrow rise,
Tho’ storms of woe should veil the skies,
Secure I rest, my God, my King,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing. [Chorus]

3 Tho’ broad the road and fair the way,
That tempts me from Thy care to stray,
More closely to Thy side I’ll cling,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing,
Beneath the shadows of Thy wing. [Chorus]
