If you read yesterday's post, you'll know that two years ago today
my father went home to be with the Lord.
I wanted to share with you the lyrics to his favorite hymn.
Even though this is a very old hymn, the words are still so beautiful
and are filled with such a wonderful promise that we can be sheltered and secured
as long as we rest in the knowledge of Jesus' love, mercy and grace.
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, 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.
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.
Under His wings, under His wings,
Who from His love can sever?
Under His wings my soul shall abide,
Safely abide forever.
