Author: David G. Preston (b. 1939) Hymnal: Hymns of Glory, Songs of Praise #9 (2008) Meter: 220.127.116.11 Hymnal Title: Hymns of Glory, Songs of Praise Lyrics: 1 O God, my refuge, keep me safe:
on you my good depends;
O Lord, you are my Lord alone,
your saints my choicest friends.
2 Whoever turns to other gods
will find remorse and shame;
to them I make no sacrifice,
nor will I speak their name.
3 The Lord is my inheritance,
a prize beyond compare;
his word instructs me day and night,
his own belovèd heir.
4 At all times I have set the Lord
before my face to stand;
no trial, no pain can shake my hope
with him at my right hand.
5 My heart and soul rejoice in you
and in your power to save:
you will not leave your Holy One
to perish in the grave.
6 You lead me to the path of life,
before your face to stand
and drink my fill of endless joys
that flow at your right hand. Topics: Eternal Life; God Protection of; Word of God Scripture: Psalm 16 Tune Title: WETHERBY
O God, my refuge, keep me safe
