“I will trust in the covert of Thy wings.” — Psalm 61:4.

L. M.

Under Thy wings, my God, I rest

Under Thy shadow safely lie;

By Thy own strength in peace possessed,

While dreaded evils pass me by.

With strong desire I here can stay

To see Thy love its work complete;

Here I can wait a long delay,

Reposing at my Savior's feet.

My place of lowly service, too,

Beneath Thy sheltering wings I see;

For all the work I have to do

Is done through strengthening rest in Thee.

I would not rise this rest above;

I do not mourn my low estate

Sure of my riches in Thy love,

I feel it good to trust and wait.

In faith and patience is repose;

In faith and rest my strength shall be;

And when thy joy the church o'erflows,

I know that it will visit me.
