‘I’ll Shelter at Your Side’ (on Psalm 57)

O Lord, have mercy on me
In you O God I hide
Beneath the shadow of your wings
I’ll shelter at your side

To God I cry aloud
His plan for me is good
He sends from heaven and rescues me
from those who seek my blood

I hear those lions roar
They’re hungry for my life
their teeth are spears and arrows and
their tongues are sharp as knives

A trap they’ve dug for me
a pit before my feet
But they were caught instead of me
I look on their defeat

Above the brightest heavens
Your name is lifted high
Your glory fills the earth O God
and reaches to the skies

My heart is fixed, O God
You will not let me stray
I’ll wake the dawn to sing your praise
O keep me in your way

I’m singing in the streets
A song of joy and praise
The wonder of your faithful love
I’ll sing through endless days

Above the brightest heavens
Your name is lifted high
Your glory fills the earth O God
and reaches to the skies
