Lyrics

Call on God, your one salvation
Rest beneath the Almighty’s shade;
In his hidden habitation
Dwell, and never be dismayed.
God shall charge his angel legions
Over you their care to keep,
Though you walk through hostile regions,
Though in desert wilds you sleep.

Since, with pure and firm affection,
You have set on God your love
With the wings of his protection,
He will shield you from above.
When you call on Him in trouble,
He will hearken, He will save;
Here for grief reward you double,
Crown with life beyond the grave.

Rest beneath the Almighty’s shade;

Dwell, and never be dismayed.

Over you their care to keep,
Though you walk through hostile regions,
Though in desert wilds you sleep.

With the wings of his protection,
He will shield you from above.
When you call on Him in trouble,
He will hearken, He will save;
Here for grief reward you double,
Crown with life beyond the grave.
