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.


Under his wings, under his wings,
Who from his love can sever?
Under his wings my soul shall abide,
Safely abide forever. - William O. Cushing


"How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing...you shall see Me no more till you say "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord." Matthew 23

Oh Ginny, this is one of my favorite old hymns . . . one that brings back wonderful childhood memories of my little church and Uncle Eldred singing this song! Thanks for posting it! Your family pic is wonderful, too!
