Under His Wings

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.

Free Victorian Calling Card with Scripture
 Under His wings, under His wings,
Who from His love can sever?
Under His wings my soul shall abide,
Safely abide forever.

Free Victorian Calling Card
  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 blessed.

Free Victorian Card
 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.

Free Victorian Card
Under His wings, under His wings,
Who from His love can sever?
Under His wings my soul shall abide,
Safely abide forever.
 
There are numerous places in scripture where God tells us we can draw close to Him and find shelter or refuge.  As a hurricane literally approaches many over this weekend, we can be reminded that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1).

Beautiful, Abby. I love this song. What would be do if we didn't know God was in control? That question has been bumping around in my mind this past week. My heart is with the many affected by Irene.

You're still in my prayers.
