You are a refuge (Arms)

Includes: Hi-Quality MP3, Choir Score, Piano Score, Backing Track

God cares. Surrounded by tragedy from the cradle to the grave, this world needs to hear the message of real and lasting hope that the Lord has given us. Things are broken, yes - but the Lord makes whole. We need to grasp this for ourselves, and take hold of the responsibility that he's given us to let the world know.

You are a refuge for the weak,
an ear to those too crushed to speak.
You promise rest for weary feet,
God you care.

You carry those who carry pain,
bring bursting life to desert plains,
give dancing hearts to those in chains,
God you care.

You have arms that reach the lost and the lonely,
a heart that loves those with no love at all;
hands to heal the hurt and the hungry.
You are the God who cares.

You stand with those who stand alone;
A shelter for those without a home.
every tear that falls you know,
God you care.

You have lavished us
with your love so we must love.
(repeat)

Give us arms to reach the lost and the lonely,
hearts to love those with no love at all;
hands to heal the hurt and the hungry.
You are the God who cares.

Cried on the first hearing. This one is a winner. It will find its way into my next preaching opportunity.

This is a great song!

I love the lines: "bring bursting life to desert plains, give dancing hearts to those in chains..."

Beautiful.
