Under His Wings
Words byWilliam O. Cushing
Music by Ira D. Sankey

Psalm 17:8
"Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,"

divider

          Under His wings I am safely abiding;
          Tho' 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.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            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, O what precious enjoyment!
          There will I hide til life's trials are o'er;
          Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me;
          Resting in Jesus I'm safe evermore.

            Chorus
            Under His wings, under His wings,
            Who from His love can sever?
            Under His wings my soul shall abide,
            Safely abide forever.
