1. Those who dwell in the shelter of the Lord
will find safety within His wing.
God, my refuge, my fortress and my shield!
All my trust, I place in You.
I will not fear the night,
the pestilence that stalks in the darkness.
With You at my side, what can harm me?
I call upon Your name, and You hear me.
I will trust in You, my Salvation.
My life is made secure through Your mercy.
2. Those who make their dwelling with the Lord
are protected throughout their days.
Though a thousand may perish at my side,
yet no harm will come my way.
God's angels will be there,
and they will lift me up and protect me!
With God at my side, what can harm me?
I call upon my Lord, and He hears me.
I will trust the Lord, my Salvation.
My life is made secure because God loves me.
