Meter: 8 6 8 6 D
Topic: forgiveness, shelter, grace

1.
How oft would the Lord us gather
Under His healing wings?
He sorrows when we would rather
Seek after sinful things.

For He offers us His shelter
No matter the strong storm.
Though on the high waves we welter,
He is our harbor warm.

2.
How oft would the Lord us defend
With his great, mighty arm?
For the Lord is our truest friend,
And will shield us from harm.

For He turns to us with kindness
Even when we turn away.
He will heal us of our blindness,
That causes us to stray.

3.
How oft would the Lord us forgive
If we forgiveness seek?
For He does want our souls to live,
Although we may be weak.

In mercy, He will succor all,
Who return to His side.
All our sins He will not recall,
If we with Him abide.
