We need a redeemer who will give us rest, eternal rest.

  • Jesus will be your Redeemer and welcome you into His family.
  • Jesus will cover you with His wings and be your refuge.
  • Jesus will give you His robe of righteousness to cover your nakedness.
  • It does not matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been.
    • We are all undeserving of His grace.
    • The invitation is open.

In trust, come to your Redeemer who will give you rest.

Under Your wings I am safely abiding;

Though the night deepens and tempests are wild,

Still I can trust You, I know You will keep me;

You have redeemed me, and I am Your child.

Under Your wings

Who from Your love can sever?

Under Your wings my soul shall abide,

Safely abide forever.

Under Your wings—what a refuge in sorrow!

How the heart yearningly turns to Your rest!

Often when earth has no balm for my healing,

There I find comfort, and there I am blest.

Under Your wings—oh, what precious enjoyment!

There will I hide till life’s trials are o’er;

Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me;

Resting in YOU Jesus I’m safe evermore.

(adaped from "Under His Wings," a hymn by William Cushing, 1823-1902)
