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]
