Song Description

"The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe." Proverbs 18:10

Story Behind the Song

In times when I need a friend, need encouragement, need a shoulder to cry on, times when life seems turned upside down. There is ALWAYS a place I can go. In the shelter of the creator of all things, there is a place under His mighty wing, and cradeled there .... He is all the shelter that I need.

Lyrics

Shelter ©2012 Janet Steely / Bruce Trent

V 1:
Who do I have in heaven but you?
You alone, Lord can lead me through.
In this dark and lonesome world
You are my guiding light
I walk by faith / and not by sight.

CH: It is good for me to draw near to you
Trusting your goodness my joy is made new
Your love overtakes me, I find perfect peace.
Shielded from the strife this world brings
Lord, You are all the shelter that I need.

short instrumental interlude

V 2: The shadows run as darkness, it flees
In Your light I have sweet victory
Love fills each word you speak
I can trust what you say
What is Your will / L~rd I'll obey.

V 3: Every task that you send me to do
With all my heart I'll do it for You.
I long for Your command
No matter what it may bring
My peace I find / in this one thing.

CH: It is good for me to draw near to you
Trusting your goodness my joy is made new
Your love overtakes me, I find perfect peace.
Shielded from the strife this world brings
Lord, You are all the shelter that I need.

End: Your love overtakes me, I find perfect peace
Lord You are all the shelter that I need x2
Yes, You are all the shelter that I need
