The Lord Will Be A Refuge

There are many problems in the world today;
Many are oppressed and suffer along the way.
By great grief the heart is engulfed by sorrow;
Few believe that there will be a better tomorrow.

It will take knowledge of God to believe;
But in faith we will find needed relief.
The Lord is the Righteous Judge of earth;
He will uphold justice and grant joyous mirth.

He will be a Refuge to all who are oppressed;
He will not forget the righteous who are blessed;
Those who know the Lord will trust in His name;
They are not alone and would never be shamed.

The heart can sing despite the many challenges in life;
It remembers that the Lord will help us overcome strife.
Mercy and strength, He would give to all His saints;
The heart cannot but sing praises to His worthy name!

Inspiration: Psalm 9:9-11
