Holy Overshadowing – Christian Worship song by Graham Kendrick (UK Worship Leader)


O spread Your wings of mercy over me And guard my heart with true humility No shadow of the darkness pressing in Only the holy overshadowing Underneath Your wings, overshadowing No refuge will I seek but God alone No hiding place save only at Your throne Only the cross, the blood to wash my sin Only the holy overshadowing Underneath Your wings, overshadowing You are my shield, and my glory You are the lifter of my head And though the storms may rage around me I’ll be safe within Beneath the holy overshadowing No burden on my back too hard to bear Only the easy load You bid me wear Until these troubles pass, my heart will sing Praise for the holy overshadowing Underneath Your wings, overshadowing You are my shield, and my glory You are the lifter of my head And though the storms may rage around me I’ll be safe within Beneath the holy overshadowing You are my shield, and my glory You are the lifter of my head And though the storms may rage around me I’ll be safe within Beneath the holy overshadowing Underneath Your wings Overshadowing, overshadowing Underneath Your wings Overshadowing, overshadowing

    He is our shield and our glory. Let him lift our hands high. Mr. Kendrick you are my continuous support and inspiration. This song is awesome and keep up the good work. Songs like this is ensure us we are in the right place worshipping the good father. Let the father be our refuge and let him overshadow us. As christians we are under a constant storm he will keep us under his wings.

    You had me in tears. The preacher at my Methodist church introduced us to Beauty for Brokenness. Where are you based? I teach Refugees and Asylum seekers at St Augustine's centre, Halifax. I would love you to sing to them.

    A " God Incidence" happened today when I was taking the service as my sister in law who is a local preacher and was due to take the service was quite weak following an illness. My message was based on "Holy Overshadowing" with the message being about living under God's protection under the shadow of Eagles Wings. At the end of the service my sister in law said you won't believe this but if I had taken the service I was going to speak on the same subject !
    This is such a moving song.

    Thank you

    O spread Your wings of mercy over me
    And guard my heart with true humility
    No shadow of the darkness pressing in
    Only the holy overshadowing
    Underneath Your wings, overshadowing

    [Verse 2]
    No refuge will I seek but God alone
    No hiding place save only at Your throne
    Only the cross, the blood to wash my sin
    Only the holy overshadowing
    Underneath Your wings, overshadowing

    [Chorus]
    You are my shield and my glory
    You are the lifter of my head
    And though the storms may rage around me
    I'll be safe within
    Beneath the holy overshadowing

    [Verse 3]
    No burden on my back too hard to bear
    Only the easy load You bid me wear
    Until these troubles pass, my heart will sing
    Praise for the holy overshadowing
    Underneath Your wings, overshadowing

    I wanted to pray but didn't have any words to express myself before God just when the words in this song came alive in my heart….. Blessed be His Holy name.

    Oh my, this song is SO special to me. I have had unanswered prayer for long-term visual problems and really didn't know how to express myself to God. This made me cry, but in a good way of release. Thank you.
