Sheltered In The Arms Of God

It’s 2:00 a.m. Below is the song that keeps playing in my head–not a bad one to wake up to. Well, I feel I must share it, and then I can go back to sleep!

There’s no better rest than in His arms…

SHELTERED IN THE ARMS OF GOD

by The Gaither Singers

I feel the touch of hands so kind and gentle,
They’re leading me in paths that I must trod;
I have no fear when Jesus walks beside me,
For I’m sheltered in the arms of God.

So let the storms rage high, the dark clouds rise,
They won’t worry me for I’m sheltered safe within the arms of God;
He walks with me and naught of Earth can harm me,
Sheltered safe within the arms of God.

Soon I shall hear the call from Heaven’s portals,
Come home my child, it’s the last mile you must trod;
I’ll fall asleep and wake in God’s new Heaven,
Sheltered safe within the arms of God.

So let the storms rage high, the dark clouds rise,
They won’t worry me for I’m sheltered safe within the arms of God;
He walks with me and naught of Earth can harm me,
Sheltered safe within the arms of God.

Sheltered safe within the arms of God!

  5. I have been sitting with my daughter who has pancreatic cancer stage IV and has been told this she only has 2 weeks to two months to live. She a beautiful young Mother of a 3 year Daughter and a 5 year old Son. She is in a great deal of pain and brokenhearted that she will be leaving these beautiful children who love her so much. It seems unreal to think that soon the young will be gone. She certainly been a joy, brightened up a room when she walked in and a blessing to have in my life. She has been writing a blog which is beautifully written she has a God given talent of expression in her words.
    This song came to my mind when I was with her and sang it to myself for fear of waking her. These words are surely a comfort at this time.
    Dottie Rambo surely is safe within the arms of God as will be my child.

  6. Dear Betty,
    Karen just called me with the sad news of Melissa’s death. My heart goes out to you and the family she leaves behind. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Melissa, I know Karen thought the world of her, Luca and Willa. Please be assured of my prayers for all of you.
    Love, Yvonne Hayes and family.
