Lyrics for "In the Shadow of the Highest "
Psalm 91:1
Lyrics by Fanny J. Crosby


Verse 1: Repeat after Verse 3:
When the toils of life are many,
And our hearts are filled with care,
When we faint beneath the burden
Of a cross we cannot bear;
In the shadow of the Highest,
In His sacred place of rest,
O the welcome that awaits us
Where the chosen ones are blest.

In the shadow of the Highest,
In His sacred place of rest,
O the welcome that awaits us
Where the chosen ones are blest.




Verse 2:  
In the shadow of the Highest,
What a vision of delight!
Floods of joy from golden regions
Burst with rapture on our sight.
In the shadow of the Highest,
In His sacred place of rest,
O the welcome that awaits us
Where the chosen ones are blest.
 
Verse 3:  
In the shadow of the Highest,
Like a dream the moments glide;
And we learn the things of
Eden,
While in peace we there abide.
In the shadow of the Highest,
In His sacred place of rest,
O the welcome that awaits us
Where the chosen ones are blest.
