For the hurting, for the weary of heart, for the tired bodies, for the aching souls…Emmanuel, be our strong tower. Hide us in the shadow of Your wing. Be our shelter. Be our peace, Lord Jesus. Let us remember, again, that You have come to us in our need. Let us remember, again, that You are here.
He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart… (from Isaiah 40)
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” (from Psalm 91)
