Thy holy wings, dear Savior spread gently over me
And thru the long night watches I'll rest secure in Thee.
Whatever may betide me, be Thou my hiding place,
And let me live and labor each day, Lord by Thy grace.
Thy pardon, Savior, grant me and cleanse me in Thy blood;
Give me a willing spirit, a heart both clean and good.
O take into Thy keeping Thy children, great and small,
And while we sweetly slumber, enfold us, one and all.
A Swedish folk melody, "Bred dina vida vingar "from the 1950 Hymnal of the Evangelical Covenant Church of America
