You are a refuge (Arms)

Added 13th September 2011


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

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.

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.

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.

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

At a time when we need to reach out, the last verse is very apt, great song.

This is a great song!

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