Sanctuary of the Lord

Drawn from Psalm 46

I rest in the Sanctuary of the Lord
Knowing that God alone is my refuge.
I am deafened by the worlds demands
Overwhelmed by its rages and torments

The seas swell and the mountains quake
The uproar of mans greed echoes through the night

Angry voices call out for revenge
Broken hearts for rescue.

But not here

Here is a Holy Place

This, my refuge
Deep as a mountain pool
Hopeful as the dawn sun
The home of the Most High

Heart’s ease is here
Soul’s friend is here
Spirit’s food is here

My Lord and my God

The Lord speaks and the world melts away

Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know
Be still
