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.

Under HIS Wings I am safely abiding.

My sister, Linda, wanted this on our Mother's gravestone. I could not remember the song that she remembered since childhood. I am especially pleased with her choice after looking it up under this website.

Continued blessings on your wonderful works.

This song just express my experiences with God. Any Time, I stayed under his wings I experienced peace and confort no matter the circounstances, financial difficulties, social issues and so on. God is the joy of my life. I really don't know what else to say but I know, He let me been through many times just to shape my characters and my personnal view in his own way. Oh I really love this song ad the lyric is really very appropriate.

Many times in my walk with the Lord I have experienced fear and frustration but this song which I believe is from Psalm 91 encourages me to remember that God is strong and will see me through every problem and will protect me from all danger. We can always depend on Jesus. I believe He is the standard that God said He would raise up against the enemy when He comes in like a flood.

I love this song because it gives me a feeling of refuge & safety, of being tenderly cared for by the Almighty.

Sorry, if I sound old-fashioned. I like it because it's one of the favourites from my youth, sung in our congregation in Hopeville, which is near Dundalk which is near a lot of little towns and villages you've probably never heard of that are southwest of Collingwood 40ish miles.

It's a favourite because the words "Under His wings" are comforting. Praise the Lord! I feel comforted...Yeah I know the song is based on a verse in one of the minor prophets. It's Old Testament and I should experience the full operation of God's New Testament economy in the All-inclusive life-giving compound Spirit. I am really trying to get with the program but sometimes I need comfort.

Here's a thought. Is it possible to experience being under His wings as an aspect of the all-inclusive life-giving Spirit in a New Testamental sense? :)
