Representative Text

1 The man that doth in secret place
Of God Most High reside,
Beneath the shade of Him that is
Th’Almighty shall abide.

[Alternate first stanza:
1 The man who in the secret place
Of God Most High resides,
Beneath the shade of Him that is
Th’Almighty Lord, abides.]

2 I of the Lord, my God, will say,
He is my refuge still;
He is my fortress, and my God;
And trust in Him I will.

3 Assuredly He shall thee save,
And give deliverance
From cunning fowler’s snare, and from
The deadly pestilence.

4 His feathers shall thee hide; thy trust
Beneath His wings shall be;
His faithfulness shall be a shield
And buckler unto thee.

5 Thou shalt not need to be afraid
For terrors of the night,
Nor for the arrow that doth fly
By day, while it is light;

6 Nor for the pestilence, that walks
In darkness secretly;
Nor for destruction, that doth waste
At noon-day openly.
