Under His wings I am safely abiding

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.

I recall this as regularly sung during my childhood in the 40s and 50s. When I heard the melody played on Haven Today, all of the words came back to me. I will sing it at our next small pastor's prayer gathering and on the telephone service where I am serving as an interim pastor.

My older two daughters sang this hymn at my 18 year old son’s funeral a few days ago. His unexpected death was one of the biggest trials I have had. When they sang this song 150 people broke down sobbing. God used it to bring such healing, especially in all the young people who were there. He is our refuge, a ever present help in time of need!
