under his wings

 

God covers me

with his gentle hand

like a warm coat

in winter winds.

 

He covers me

with his wide mercy

like a big umbrella

in spring downpour.

 

He covers me

with his tender love

like a bridal tent

in summer sun.

 

He covers me

with his life’s blood

like a full pardon

in fall darkness.

 

He covers me

with his eternal grace

like a safe shelter

in all seasons.

 

“We live under an umbrella of goodness and mercy.”  (Pastor T. on Psalm 23)

“I am my beloved’s and he is mine…his banner over me is love.” (Song of Songs)

    Very nice. I like the idea of God’s tender love like a bridal tent in summer.

    I’m not a believer myself, but this is a beautiful poem.
