"IN THE SHADOW OF THY WINGS"

In the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice
For Thou hast been my helper and my strength
Sheltering me from my storms of life
Embracing me so tenderly
To keep me close to You – close to You, Lord
To quiet my soul from fear and evil
Just resting peacefully beneath Thy wings – beneath Thy wings
Just trusting in the shadow of Thy wings!

In the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice
Underneath are Thy everlasting arms
Thy right hand upholds me
By Thy power and Thy grace
So I might not grow weary in well-doing
When cold and frightened from my storms of life
I run and hide beneath Thy wings – beneath Thy wings
Just trusting in the shadow of thy wings!

In the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice – rejoice
Nestled under Thy wings safe and secure
Trusting in the shadow of Thy wings.

Psalm 63:7 – “Because Thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.”

Psalm 91:4 – “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.”

Psalm 57:1,2 – “…for my soul trusteth in Thee; yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.”

Isaiah 40:31 – “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

As a chick clings to his mother hen (under her wings) and runs under her wings in a storm, so our Heavenly Father wants to do for us – for us to come running to Him in our storms of life – under His wings – close to Him – in the shadow of His Wings! So precious!
