under your warm wings

God, tender and strong,
    as the plover defends her young
    against all their enemies,
so defend me
   against those nameless fears
    which are my enemies.
Under your warm wings
    let me take shelter
    until faith and courage return.
For your love’s sake. Amen.

Bruce Prewer, Australian minister


Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
