In You, O Lord, we trust and take refuge.
When all else is unreliable and enemies assail us,
Be to us a Rock of refuge,
That we may stand firm and endure,
That we may be bold in lifting Your name
Above all others,
That we may lift our voices in thanksgiving
To the God of our salvation.
In Your righteousness and grace, rescue and deliver us
From the evils of this present age.
Bring consolation to the afflicted,
And restore the many families who suffer today.
In You there is hope in the darkest of times.
At the sound of Your voice the winds and rain bow.
Upon You alone we lean for our stability.
Give us spiritual vision and lighten our pathways.
Our praise will be continually before You.
A song of gratitude for the freedom You have granted;
A song of mourning for our perversion of it;
A lament for our national blindness and rebellion.
Do not cast us off to our own devices,
For our foolish hearts and minds deceive us
Into pursuing the shallow profits of this world,
While ignoring the priceless blessings of eternity.
O God, do not be far from us,
Make haste to help and deliver us, yet again.
Evil creeps at our doorsteps and seeks to entice us
Into a worthless battle of the flesh.
They who hate You seek to destroy us;
Therefore, for Your own glory, and
In Your Holy Name, rise up to meet them,
And let them run in fear.
We will wait for Your salvation, O Lord,
For we know there is no other,
And much blessing awaits those who wait on You.
Come, Lord Jesus, come.
