He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust…Thou shalt not be afraid…for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.@Psalm 91:4–7

He my refuge is, my fortress,
I will put my trust in Him;
While His own strong arm upholds me,
Never shall my faith grow dim.

Refrain

He shall cover thee with His feathers,
And under His wings shalt thou trust;
He shall cover thee with His feathers,
And under His wings shalt thou trust.

For the Lord who clothes the lilies
Greater care shall have for me;
Tho’ a thousand fall beside me,
From destruction I am free.

Refrain

He hath set His love upon me,
Angels watch o’er all my ways;
And His loving care, His kindness,
Well deserves my highest praise.

Refrain

He will answer me in trouble,
Will deliver when I cry;
And because His name I honor,
He will set me up on high.
