Lyric

1. You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
who abide in his shadow for life,
say to the Lord: "My refuge,
my Rock in whom I trust."

REFRAIN
And He will raise you up on eagle's wings,
bear you on the breath of dawn,
make you to shine like the sun
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

2. The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
and famine will bring you no fear:
under His wings your refuge,
His faithfulness your shield.

REFRAIN

3. You need not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrrow that flies by day,
though thousands fall about you,
near you it shall not come.

REFRAIN

4. For to his angels He's given a command,
to guard you in all of your ways,
upon their hands they will bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

REFRAIN
