    Songs

    The Lord’s my shepherd I’ll not want 

    What a friend we have in Jesus 

    Amazing grace [my chains fell off]

    Faithful One so unchanging 

    Lord I give you my heart 

    Another Song

    The song ‘Holy Overshadowing’ was written by Graham Kendrick and Ben Trigg in 2013. The words are very comforting and particularly relevant for our time:

    O spread Your wings of mercy over me
    And guard my heart with true humility
    No shadow of the darkness pressing in
    Only the holy overshadowing
    Underneath Your wings, overshadowing

    No refuge will I seek but God alone
    No hiding place save only at Your throne
    Only the cross, the blood to wash my sin
    Only the holy overshadowing
    Underneath Your wings, overshadowing

    You are my shield, and my glory
    You are the lifter of my head
    And though the storms may rage around me
    I’ll be safe within
    Beneath the holy overshadowing

    No burden on my back too hard to bear
    Only the easy load You bid me wear
    Until these troubles pass, my heart will sing
    Praise for the holy overshadowing
    Underneath Your wings, overshadowing

    Chorus

    Underneath Your wings
    Overshadowing, overshadowing

    You can listen to a beautiful cover version of the song by Jane Kitson and Simeon Wood here.
