Ruler of the Universe,
Help me to find
shelter in You this day.
You are my rock,
my hiding place.
a high tower to whom I can run.
Underneath the cover of your almighty wings,
Let me know your protection.
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.
For in the time of trouble, He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle, He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.
Psalm 61: 1-4
Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer.
From the end of the earth, I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah
Note from the Reformation Heritage KJV version:
“Tabernacle” refers to God’s tent, not the sacred tabernacle into which only priests could enter, but a symbol of dwelling in fellowship with God, claiming Him as his Host to protect and provide for him. “Covert” means shelter.
