Under His wings I am safely abiding

Under His wings I am safely abiding;
  Though the night deepens and tempests are wild,
Still I can trust Him, I know He will keep me;
  He has redeemed me, and I am His child.
  Under His wings, under His wings,
  Who from His love can sever?
Under His wings my soul shall abide,
    Safely abide forever.
Under His wings—what a refuge in sorrow!
  How the heart yearningly turns to His rest!
Often when earth has no balm for my healing,
  There I find comfort, and there I am blest.
Under His wings—oh, what precious enjoyment!
  There will I hide till life’s trials are o’er;
Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me;
  Resting in Jesus I’m safe evermore.

Singing this to my mother who has Alzheimer’s. The song struck a chord in her heart. She responded by saying she wanted to go home. She rarely speaks anymore but today she did!!!

Hurricane Irma is due to hit Florida on Sabbath. We are abiding under our dear LORD's wings. Thank you for this comforting most lovely hymn. Love to you.

This song brings me hopes when darkness covers me around. At times I do think I'm like a island and I do think am autonomous, but it reminds that I'm under the wings a super hero - Jesus Christ.

I heard this song this evening on BBN radio. It made me so happy when I heard it, I loved the lyrics. I send me an email so I will send it to my friends who will find comfort.

This song has ever been my analgesic when I feel emotionally unstable. I immediately understand that my peace is right in the presence of God.
