1 The God of Bethel
who never changes,
God of our forebears
now dead.

Refrain:
Spread your wings of love over us
to protect us.
Spread your wings of love over us
night and day.

2 Through the desert
we journey
we have no permanent
resting place. [Refrain]

3 Lead us,
give us a loving heart;
feed us according to your will
that our hearts may be righteous. [Refrain]
