Psalm 63 – Shadow of Your Wings

The other day one of my fellow bloggers posted part of Psalm 63 on Facebook, and it reminded me of the song by Casting Crowns called “Shadow of Your Wings,” which is based on that Psalm. So I decided for Psalm Sunday this week I wanted to post Psalm 63 along with a video of how Casting Crowns put it to music.

Psalm 63

    A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.

 1 O God, you are my God,
   earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
   my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
   where there is no water.

 2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
   and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life,
   my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
   and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
   with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

 6 On my bed I remember you;
   I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help,
   I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 My soul clings to you;
   your right hand upholds me.

 9 They who seek my life will be destroyed;
   they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
   and become food for jackals.

 11 But the king will rejoice in God;
   all who swear by God’s name will praise him,
   while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

  1. Thanks Linda,
    This is a great encouragement,
    Casting Crowns is my favorite group, I couldn’t see them, they were here on 9-23 with the same people u saw them with, but my girls had homecoming that night, and we couldn’t go. I saw them before, and theyare awesome. Please keep me in your prayers if you will, this migraine thing is really dragging me under lately, having a hard time getting out from under it this time. I am sorry you are having issues with it too, will pray for you too. Larry wrote something interesting about migraines on my next to last post and their connedction to demons that you would find interesting i thing. God Bless, we will get thro this with prayer-Jim

  2. I was soooo blessed by this . . .the Psalm itself blew me away in how much it ministered to me, today, where I am at. And the song! Now I will never read that Psalm again without thinking of this song. Loved it!
    Feeling safe and loved and praising Him, under the shadow of His wings, while Aubrey is having seizures this weekend.
    God bless you, Linda, as you let Him direct your blog to reach out to us!

    • Deb, I am sorry to hear Aubrey is struggling with seizures. I will keep you both in my prayers. So glad I could remind you that you are in the shadow of His wing always. Peace, Linda
