I Have a Shelter

This song, written by Steve and Vicki Cook, hails from Sovereign Grace's Come Weary Saints album. I told Rev and Philip that it's been an album that has blessed me tremendously in the past several days, despite the fact that I didn't really give it a whole lot of listening time when I first got it in the spring. iTunes has had it on repeat as of late, and every time I hear the last line of the song, I think of Ryan telling me some months ago, "Come home soon and let me shepherd you to heaven." Even more, I think of how safe I am in the arms of the Great Shepherd, and how, despite the fact that I run after so many things, I still want nothing more than to be held in His arms. Even now, as I travel the long, painful journey home, I'm very certain that I'm listening to this. Thanks for the reminder, Andrew.

I have a shelter in the storm
When troubles pour upon me
Though fears are rising like a flood
My soul can rest securely
O Jesus, I will hide in You
My place of peace and solace
No trial is deeper than Your love
That comforts all my sorrows

I have a shelter in the storm
When all my sins accuse me
Though justice charges me with guilt
Your grace will not refuse me
O Jesus, I will hide in You
Who bore my condemnation
I find my refuge in Your wounds
For there I find salvation

I have a shelter in the storm
When constant winds would break me
For in my weakness, I have learned
Your strength will not forsake me
O Jesus, I will hide in You
The One who bears my burdens
With faithful hands that cannot fail
You’ll bring me home to heaven
