But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you. (Psalm 5:11)
I awaken this morning
and take refuge in You, my Lord.
No other person or place can shelter me
like You can, my God.
Under the Cross of Christ my Savior
I find rest for my soul, now and forever;
in Jesus is my true Shalom.
Come, cover me in Your life and love
even as I lift my eyes and voice to You.
Come, guide me in Your everlasting ways
through thee jungle-like pathways of this life.
Come, restore me to true life and human personality
in this world of death and dehumanization.
You are my song,
