Shelter Me

Standard

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Psalm 27:5

Sometimes there are no words  . . . This is one of my favorite songs and it’s message is one I have clung to many times in my life.

Shelter Me Lyrics by Buddy Miller (Album:Universal United House of Prayer)

the earth can shake the sky come down
the mountains all fall to the ground
but I will fear none of these things
shelter me lord underneath your wings

dark waters rise and thunders pound
the wheels of war are going round
and all the walls are crumbling
shelter me lord underneath your wings

(shelter me lord)
hide me underneath you wings
hide me deep inside your heart
in your refuge – cover me
the world can shake
but lord I’m making you my hiding place

the wind can blow the rain can pour
the deluge breaks the tempest roars
but in the storm my spirit sings
(when you) shelter me lord underneath your wings

(shelter me lord)
hide me underneath you wings
hide me deep inside your heart
in your refuge – cover me
the world can shake
but lord I’m making you my hiding place

now on the day you call for me
someday when time – no more shall be
I’ll say oh death where is your sting
you shelter me lord underneath your wings
