My Refuge

Psalm 59:16 “…for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” (NIV)*

Castle on a hill

When trouble comes

As surely, it will

There’s a place to run

Fortress on a hill.

………………..

Bastion of protection

From enemy’s advance

A place to refocus

Strengthen battle stance.

………………..

Hiding behind parapets

On ramparts, standing guard

To load and even fire

When enemy presses hard.

………………..

A bulwark waiting

In lands of uncertainty

A supporting stronghold

My refuge, is He.

………………..
