I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.@Psalm 91:2

Charles H. Gabriel (1856-1932)

Paraphrase of Psalm 91.

Florissant Charles H. Gabriel, 1917 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I of the Lord my God will say,
He is my refuge and my stay;
To Him for safety I will flee,
In Him my constant trust shall be.

Refrain

Because thy trust is God alone,
Thy refuge is the Highest One,
No evil shall upon thee come,
Nor plague approach thy guarded home.

No nightly terrors shall alarm,
No deadly shaft by day shall harm,
Nor pestilence that walks by night,
Nor plague that wastes in noonday light.

Refrain

Angelic guards at His command
Will bear thee safely in their hands,
Will keep thee, lest, if left alone,
Thou dash thy foot against a stone.
