Under his shadow...


Jesus was at the first to us a refuge in time of trouble.

Weary was the way,
and great was the heat;
our lips were parched,
and our souls were fainting;
we sought for shelter,
and we found none;
for we were in the wilderness of sin and condemnation,
and who could bring us deliverance, or even hope?

Then we cried unto the Lord in our trouble, and He led us
to the Rock of ages, which of old was cleft for us.

We saw our interposing Mediator coming between us and
the fierce heat of justice, and we hailed the blessed screen.

The Lord Jesus was unto us a covering for sin, and so a
covert from wrath.
The sense of divine displeasure, which had beaten upon
our conscience, was removed by the removal of the sin
itself, which we saw to be laid on Jesus, who in our place
and stead endured its penalty.

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty." Psalm 91:1
