God Is My Rock And Fortress...

God Is My Strength And Fortress…


 


I love you my Lord! 


You are my strength!


Your love for me reaches a


non-measurable length


 


You Oh lord, are my rock,


fortress and deliverer…


Your beauty shines brighter than


 the purest gold or silver!


 


You, Oh God… Are the horn of my


 salvation and my high tower


You reign over the earth in your


 majesty and great power!


 


I will call upon the Lord who is


 so worthy of all praise


He is my peace and comforter


 all of my days!


 


He shall save me from my enemies


 and bring the victory!


I have found strength from him


and a holy sanctuary


 


Though the sorrows of death


 often surround me…


God’s victory over death continues


 to astound me!


 


At times, the crowds of ungodly


 men cause me to fear…


But I draw comfort in knowing


that God is always near!


 


I bless the Lord for being


 so steadfast and true!


I don’t really know what I would


 without YOU!


 


You heard my distress


and answered my cry…


As one day I shall be with you at


 that mansion in the sky!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
