Angel wings

Psalm 57:1 “…I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.”


But I am kept

under angel wings

covered in shadows

where mercy sings.


A place to stay

where else would I go

healing balm drips

on anxious soul.


Jesus keep me

clasped to your side

your cadence my step

my step your stride.
