1 Neath the shadow of th’Almighty,
In the presence of my King;
I am hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing.
In the secret place abiding,
In contentment I can sing,
I am hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing.

Refrain:
Hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing,
I am hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing.

2 When the storms of life are raging,
Closer to His side I cling;
I am hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing.
In His love I’m safely sheltered,
Peace and quiet He doth bring.
I am hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing. [Refrain]

3 All my life, my love, my service,
All I have to Him I bring;
I am hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing.
He will hide me, safely hide me
Till in heav’n this song I sing:
I am hiding, hiding,
Hiding in the shadow of His wing. [Refrain]
