I Take Refuge in the Lord God!

I Take Refuge In the Lord!


In you, O Lord, I take refuge and strength.

Your love for me is an immeasurable length!


Let me not be put to shame,

but rescue and deliver me!

As my enemies approach,

your spirit surrounds me!


As you tune your ear,

 to listen and save me…

My problems and worries,

you put beneath me!


You are my rock and refuge

 to which I can go!

You bring peace and strength,

 to my weary soul!


You’ve given the command

 to reach out and save me!

You’ve done this, because of how much

 you love me!


You’ve delivered me from the reach

of wicked and evil men!

And have been there for me, time and time again!


You are my hope and confidence,

 in whom I can trust in!

You are my Lord God,

 in whom I surely believe in!


From my birth and mother’s womb,

 I shall praise you!

I need you so much! What would I do without you?

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!
