Shadow Of Safety

Tune: St Peter

('How sweet the name of Jesus sounds')

Psalm 17 parts


Keep me as apple of your eye

I to you for help fly

Hide me 'neath shadow of your wings

My soul there to you sings


Hold up my goings in your ways

And guide me all my days

That my footsteps slips not, steady

Sure, on your path I be


I have called on you, you will hear

Hold my prayers to you dear

And hear my words, to you I speak

With heart humble and meek


Show your marvellous love, kindness

To us, save us, and bless

you who save by your strong hand free

From our foes enemies
