16. The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by him, and the Lord shall cover him all the day long. DEUT. 33:12.
As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His children gathers,
Spreads His wings and hides them there;
All their foes they boldly dare.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings. PSA. 17:8.
