Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


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.


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.


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.
