In The Shadow of His Wings

Psalms 63:1-8. Joy in the Fellowship of God. A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

  1. O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water.
  2. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.
  3. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You.
  4. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.
  5. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
  6. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.
  7. Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
  8. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.

In the shadow of His wings
There is rest, sweet rest;
There is rest from care and labor,
There is rest for friend and neighbor;
In the shadow of His wings
There is rest, sweet rest,
In the shadow of His wings
There is rest (sweet rest).

Refrain
There is rest, there is peace,
There is joy, in the shadow of His wings:
There is rest, there is peace,
There is joy, in the shadow of His wings.

In the shadow of His wings
There is peace, sweet peace,
Peace that passeth understanding,
Peace, sweet peace that knows no ending;
In the shadow of His wings
There is peace, sweet peace,
In the shadow of His wings
There is peace (sweet peace).
Refrain

In the shadow of His wings
There is joy, glad joy,
There is joy to tell the story,
Joy exceeding, full of glory;
In the shadow of His wings
There is joy, glad joy,
In the shadow of His wings
There is joy (glad joy).
Refrain
