Full Text

1 God is a refuge, a shelter in trouble,
Trust in His care, for He walks by thy side;
Sharing thy burdens, thy joys He doth double,
Trust in Jehovah, whatever betide.

Refrain:
Trust in Jehovah, trust in Jehovah,
Rock of thy refuge, and He shall prevail;
When in the sunshine, or in the shadow,
Trust in Jehovah, His love cannot fail.

2 God is a refuge, a solace in sorrow,
Trust in His wisdom, His tender control;
He will not fail thee today, nor tomorrow,
Trust in Jehovah, the strength of thy soul. [Refrain]

3 God is a refuge, O soul to Him flying,
Trust Him, He loves thee, and He will prevail;
Trust in Him ever, when living, when dying,
Trust in Jehovah, His love cannot fail. [Refrain]
