1 In the shadow of His wings
There is rest, sweet rest;
There is rest from care and labor,
There is rest for friend and neighbor;
In the shadow of His wings
There is rest, sweet rest,
In the shadow of His wings
There is rest (sweet rest).

Chorus:
There is rest, (sweet rest,)
There is peace, (sweet peace,)
There is joy, (glad joy,)
In the shadow of His wings:
There is rest, (sweet rest,)
There is peace, (sweet peace,)
There is joy, (glad joy,)
In the shadow of His wings.

2 In the shadow of His wings
There is peace, sweet peace,
Peace that passeth understanding,
Peace, sweet peace that knows no ending;
In the shadow of His wings
There is peace, sweet peace,
In the shadow of His wings
There is peace (sweet peace). [Chorus]

3 In the shadow of His wings
There is joy, glad joy,
There is joy to tell the story,
Joy exceeding, full of glory;
In the shadow of His wings
There is joy, glad joy,
In the shadow of His wings
There is joy (glad joy). [Chorus]
