Courage of the Covered

"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.... He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid" (Psalm 91:1,4,5).

The secret place where we may hide
Is found beneath the wings
Of Him who called us to His side:
Our Lord, the King of kings!

For as a hen whose wings are spread
To boldly save her own,
Our Savior suffered in our stead
Upon the cross alone.

Beneath His shadow we have found
A safe and secret place
Where calm and courage shall abound
Through His abundant grace.

How rightly, then, we may be bold,
Since He is our Defense!
So may His Gospel now be told
With love and confidence.

O Lord, beneath Your shadow here
We gratefully derive
Our freedom from eternal fear
Because You are alive!

And here, O Lord, we ponder thus
The price that You once paid
To spread Your shadow over us
And make us unafraid.
