Our Strong Fortress

Based on Psalm 18:10

 

A Strong Fortress protects us and doesn't change.
The Lord is a Strong Fortress

The Lord is a strong fortress.

You hear my cries, my sobs in the dark.

When I am overwhelmed, You comfort me.

Oh Lord, draw me near to You.

 

When I am alone in my grief, You comfort me.

The huge holes in my heart threaten to engulf me.

The memories that spring to mind daily won’t let me move forward.

Oh Lord, You are my rock on which I start each day.

 

Days when I feel like everyone is against me, You are with me.

When I think no one sees me, You know where I am.

As my cries go unheard, You gently remind me I am loved.

You are my firm foundation.

 

I shout Your name whenever I feel the darkness surrounding me.

Your name is a bright light in my grief.

I know I will see some of my loved ones again.

I grieve for the ones whose eternity is uncertain.

 

You remind me of Your love, mercy, and grace.

I cling to the rock of Your everlasting faithfulness.

I search for You in the good times and the hard times.

You are always there.

 

The Lord is a strong fortress.

You hear my cries of joy and sorrow.

Everyday, You comfort me.

Oh Lord, draw me near to You.
