He will hide me

Mary E. Servoss (1881) Tune: When the storms of life are raging (McGranahan)


1 When the storms of life are raging,
Tempests wild on sea and land,
I will seek a place of refuge
In the shadow of God’s hand. 

Refrain:
He will hide me, He will hide me,
Where no harm can e’er betide me;
He will hide me, safely hide me,
In the shadow of His hand. 

2 Though He may send some affliction,
’Twill but make me long for home;
For in love and not in anger,
All His chastenings will come. [Refrain]

3 Enemies may strive to injure,
Satan all his arts employ;
He will turn what seems to harm me
Into everlasting joy. [Refrain]

4 So while here the cross I’m bearing,
Meeting storms and billows wild,
Jesus for my soul is caring,
Naught can harm His Father’s child. [Refrain]
