Representative Text

1 The Lord is my Refuge and here will I stay,
At morning and evening to praise and to pray;
To glean from the scriptures the precepts of life,
And live for his glory ‘mid error and strife.

Refrain:
The Lord is my Refuge,
My Refuge forever,
My heart it rejoices, my song it is sweet,
The Lord is my Refuge forever.

2 The tempter assails me, dark tempests appear,
But I have no reason to tremble, nor fear;
And lo, ‘mid the billows that surge at my feet,
I’m safe from all danger in this my retreat. [Refrain]

3 The Lord is my Refuge and here will I rest,
And watch till the sunset fades out in the west;
For life, it is fleeting; the angel will come,
But only to call me to heaven, my home. [Refrain]
