Sanctuary

I’m writing this on a gloomy day. It is raining.

This week a friend of mine had the sad duty of saying goodbye to her father.  I affectionately refer to her as superwoman because of her strength and perseverance in all circumstances that come her way and her steadfast faith in God all the while.

Browsing through my itunes library I rediscovered this song Steve Dupree showed me a while ago by the trio Red Horse. It is a song perfect for anyone going through going through trials and sadness, battles and despair. A song that says despite all the things I go through, we have a safe place in the love of God.

It is called Sanctuary. Here are the lyrics.

 

Yeah though I walk through the valley of the shadow thou art with me
though my heart's been torn on fields of battle thou art with me
though my trust is gone and my faith not near
in love's sanctuary thou art with me

Through desolation's fire and fear's dark thunder thou art with me
through the sea of desires that drag me under thou art with me
though I've been traded in like a souvenir
on love's sanctuary thou art with me

Through the doubter's gloom and the cynic's sneer thou art with me
in the crowded rooms of a mind unclear thou art with me
though I'll walk for a while down a trail of tears
in love's sanctuary thou art with me
