From the Album Sing! Psalms: Ancient + Modern


My dwelling place is God Most High
My refuge and my fortress
When plague and pestilence draw nigh
I’m hidden in His presence
When terrors fall and arrows fly
His shield will be my safety
When stones across my pathway lie
On angels’ wings I’m carried

My dwelling place is God Most High
A present help in danger
I rest secure in Love’s pure light,
Beneath My Master’s favor
He freed me from the fowler’s snare
Where sin and shame had bound me
Deceived I made my refuge there,
Till fearless He came for me

Wonderful, powerful, my hope and my defender
Mighty God, Emmanuel, my dwelling place forever

My dwelling place is God Most High
I’ll never seek another
For I am His and He is mine
My heart He’ll keep forever
I know the Name on Whom I call
He promises to answer
With life he satisfies my soul
And crowns me with his pleasure
