1 When the shadows darkly gather
‘Round my pathway here below,
And the floods of sore affliction
Threaten me to overflow;
Then, O Father, give me shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing,
Then, O Father, give me shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing.

2 Let me learn the blessed lesson,
That behind the blackest sky
The bright sun of love is shining,
And the clouds must soon roll by,
May I know the sure, safe shelter,
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing,
May I know the sure, safe shelter,
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing.

3 Resting sweetly in Thy keeping,
Folded safely in Thy love,
Where no evil can come near me,
And no trials can me move;
When I creep into safe shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing,
When I creep into safe shelter
‘Neath the shadow of Thy wing.
