The Beauty of Boundaries Day 13 – Song for Our Saturday: “Under His Wings”

When we think of boundaries and our protection, is there a safer place than under the wings of Jesus? This beautiful old hymn perfectly portrays the way we may feel tucked tightly under the shelter of His love and protection. 

  1. Under His wings I am safely abiding;
    Though the night deepens and tempests are wild,
    Still I can trust Him—I know He will keep me;
    He has redeemed me and I am His child.
    • Refrain:
      Under His wings, under His wings,
      Who from His love can sever?
      Under His wings my soul shall abide,
      Safely abide forever.
  2. Under His wings, what a refuge in sorrow!
    How the heart yearningly turns to His rest!
    Often when earth has no balm for my healing,
    There I find comfort, and there I am blessed.
  3. Under His wings, oh, what precious enjoyment!
    There will I hide till life’s trials are o’er;
    Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me,
    Resting in Jesus, I’m safe evermore.

-William Cushing, 1896
