1 In you, O Lord, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
2 In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;
incline your ear to me and save me.
3 Be to me a rock of refuge,
a strong fortress to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
4 Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of the unjust and cruel.
5 For you, O Lord, are my hope,
my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
6 From my birth I have leaned upon you,
my protector since my mother’s womb.
My praise is continually of you.
Rock, fortress, refuge, strength, hope, protector - this is our God. These words remind us of our great security and safety.
Rock, fortress, refuge, strength, hope, protector - his is our Good God!
Prayer. Lord God Almighty, please send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to help us remember our security in your. Our lives are hidden with Christ in you (Colossians 3). Thanks be to God for Jesus. Amen.
