SCENIC SUNDAYS: Under His Wings








  • A waterfall in Alabama, taken by Jamie this spring...




    THINKING AND PRAYING FOR OF ALL THOSE IN THE SOUTH AFFECTED BY THE SEVERE WEATHER AND HORRIFIC TORNADOES.  

    WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO GOD FOR HIS PROTECTION ON FAMILY  THERE, AND ALSO KEENLY AWARE OF THE SORROW AND LOSS OF SO MANY THAT WERE IN THE STORM.  




    UNDER HIS WINGS
    William O. Cushing




    Under His wings I am safely abiding; 
    Tho 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.

    CHORUS:
    Under His wings, under His wings, 
    Who from His love can sever?
    Under His wings my soul shall abide,
    Safely abide forever.

    Under His wings what a refuge in sorrow!
    How the heart yearning turns to His rest!
    Often when earth has no balm for my healing,
    There I find comfort, and there I am blest.

    Under His wings, O 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.



    Go HERE for the tune to this classic hymn!
