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!
