My Chains Are Gone
My chief desire in all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of people; and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth - J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)

Sheltered In His Shadow

I am sheltered in His shadow,
rescued from raging storm;
my haven and seclusion where
I transcend human life: reborn.

I am sheltered in His shadow,
watched over tenderly;
He asks nothing for Himself, yet,
all that God has, He gives freely.

I am sheltered in His shadow
and warmed by His embrace;
I’d want nothing more than my
greatest hope: to gaze upon His face.

I am sheltered in His shadow;
there’s nothing I need give.
My life? Much less fraught with burdens.
I trust in Jesus just to live.

I am sheltered in His shadow;
it’s not what I deserve.
Oh God! Draw me closer that I,
like You, might sacrifice and serve.
