Shelter Me

IMG_5188.JPG
Lord, hide me in your shadow, in safety, shelter me,
Storm and trial besieging, yet none should bother me.
Your crook and staff assuring, before them, worries flee,
Then lay me down to pasture, at last, I’m home and free.
~ D.F.

“The Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I shall want.”
~ Psalm 23:1

  1. “Shelter me, O God; Hide me in the shadow of your wings. You alone are my hope. When my foes surround me, set me high above their reach. Hear me when I call your name.” When I read your poem it brought this hymn to mind Shelter Me, O God by Bob Hurd. The words are from Psalms 16 & 61 and Luke 13:34. Beautiful!
