The man who once has found abode
Within the secret place of God,
Shall with Almighty God abide,
And in His shadow safely hide.
I of the Lord my God will say,
He is my refuge and my stay;
To Him for safety I will flee;
My God, in Him my trust will be.
The Lord with His protecting care
Shall keep thee from the hidden snare;
When fearful plagues around prevail,
Thy life the scourge shall not assail.
Thou shalt beneath His wings bide,
And safe within His care confide;
His faithfulness shall ever be
A sure protection unto thee.
No nightly terrors shall alarm;
No deadly shaft by day shall harm;
Nor pestilence that walks by night,
Nor plagues that waste in noonday light.
At thy right hand, though thousands die,
No harm shall unto thee come nigh;
But thou, secure, unharmed, shalt see
What wicked men's reward shall be.
