Shelter and Safety

November 19, 2010

~
I will dwell in Your shelter
I will rest in Your shadow
You are the Almighty
You are my refuge
~
In you I will trust
Cover me with Your feathers
Save me from the fowlers snare
Deadly pestilence
Your faithfulness is my shield
There’s no terror in the night
~
Do not be afraid
You are under His great care
The wicked will be punished
You’ll see with your eyes
That no harm will befall you
He will command His angels
~
Angels will lift you
They will hold you in their hands
Because you love Him
He’ll rescue and protect you
From all the trouble that comes
~
There is a promise
Given to you by your God
Will you believe him
~
He has delivered my life
I have tasted and seen it
He has given me honor
And a life that’s long
~
I love his teachings
They bring life to my being
My soul rests in him
~
Each morning I arise
I seek to engage his love
I draw near to him in faith
Waiting to hear him
~
I want to see You
I want to rest in the truth
I want to live free
I will give my life to You
It is You I will obey
~
Your love compels me 
I only want one thing
To be close to You
You are the giver of life
Who is able to give love
~
I will focus
On the one who gives me life
Reorient my thinking
My soul will be filled with light
And illuminate my way
~
I’ve no other love
That can compare with my God
He came in the flesh
Experienced my despair
And he invites me to come
~
In the morning You love me
In the night You give me rest
I have no fear of dying
The future’s certain
~
I will sing a song of joy
A lasting relationship
That gives insight and wisdom
To love and be loved
~
No one can compare
With the love I’ve come to know
A love that is for each one
A choice you can make
Be still and listen
Meditate and gain knowledge
~
I need perspective
I am tossed about with fear
Anxiety kills
There is one voice that calms me
The one who made the eye sees
~
The one who made the ear hears
He is able to calm you
His voice above all others
Is the one I choose
~
“My foot is slipping”
Your love, O Lord, supports me
When anxiety was great
You comforted me
I will obey your thinking
For I trust in your great love
