God Is Our Refuge...

God Is Our Refuge...

God is our refuge and strength,
in a time of trouble.
He's there to pick me up...
when I fall and stumble.

I will not fear, though the
whole earth be taken.
And the mountains be thrown into
the ocean's deep basin.

Though the waters roar, and the trees
shake with fear;
I am never alone....
for God is always near..

There is a river, whose streams
bring forth gladness.
God is in it's midst and
brings true happiness.

Let the heathen rage...
and the whole earth melt too.
The Lord of hosts is with us,
and shall protect YOU!

Behold his works... and see
what he has made.
He has caused wars to cease...
& destroyed weapons displayed.

Be still... He is God and is exalted
to glory up on high.
He is our protector.
He is El-Shadaii!

The Lord of hosts is with us...
all of heaven does proclam.
The awesome power and glory
there is... in HIS majestic name!

By Jim Pemberton (c) 2008
Psalm Ch. 46

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!
