I will rejoice with gladness deep,
While in Thy care I wake or sleep;
Close to Thy side will ever cling,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing.

Refrain

Morning and evening I will sing,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing,
Morning and evening I will sing,
Under the shadow, under the shadow,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing.

I will rejoice that Thou art near,
Thou wilt the faintest whisper hear;
Darkness may come, but I will sing,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing.

Refrain

I will rejoice, my heart doth leap;
To Thee in danger I will creep;
Counting it joy all pain to bring,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing

Refrain

Safe in its shelter I would hide,
There let me evermore abide;
I can rejoice in everything,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing,
Under the shadow, the shadow of Thy wing.
