In the Lord I Have Sought Refuge

In the Lord have I sought refuge. Let me not be put to shame.

God in righteousness deliver all who call upon your name. 

Hear in heaven,come to rescue.  Like a rock, protect and save.

For your name’s sake, lead and guide me, lest I early meet the grave.

From the net that’s hidden for me; save me by your mighty arm.

To your hands I trust my spirit, knowing that I’m safe from harm. 

How abundant is the goodness you’ve laid up for those you claim.

What you’ve done for folks who trust you causes all to praise your name.

Bless the Lord who, steadfast, loves me; helps me when I turn in prayer.

Love the Lord all faithful people, trust in God’s eternal care.
