By Lucia K Haase
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.’
