There is a fortress where I often go
where strength is found as strong as castle walls
where living water, courses with the flow
of mighty overflowing waterfalls.
A refuge that is always there for me
in times of trouble such a peaceful place
a place where I am, strengthened and will be
upraised in spirit by his tender grace.
It’s where he teaches me a certain song
that stays with me throughout the day and night
a song that surely, carries me along
while bathed within the manna of his light…
It is the fortress, of the One adored –
the fortress of our sweet and precious Lord!
‘But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.’
