In the shadow of your wings

My fears are never ending
They are the vastness of the skies
The great expanses of the oceans
The mountains of the most high

But in the shadow of your wings
All my fears, they wash away
In the shadow of your wings
It is here I wish to stay

Lord it is where I take my refuge
In your power and your might
In the shadow of your wings
Under your gaze and watchful sight

My sins are like the sun
They burn me with their heat
As they rise with me each morning
I alone cannot defeat

But in the shadow of your wings
My sins are left behind
In the shadow of your wings
Forgiveness is what I find

Lord it is where I take my refuge
In your power and your might
In the shadow of your wings
Under your gaze and watchful sight

My hurts, they reach deep beyond
The surface of my flesh
My very soul is maimed
All my wounds remain a fresh

But in the shadow of your wings
These wounds begin to heal
In the shadow of your wings
Changed is my appearance, surreal

Lord it is where I take my refuge
In your power and your might
In the shadow of your wings
Under your gaze and watchful sight

In the shadow of your wings
Oh lord you heal me
Believe me, forgive me
Forever I take refuge
In the shadow of your wings
