Maryetta Cooke Wesley
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of The Almighty. I will say of The Lord, He is my refuge and fortress: My God in Him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler and the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shall thou trust. His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
