OUR REFUGE – Gary Bertnick

To stand in the Presence of Majesty
The Glory of the Throne radiant with Holiness
Unspeakable beauty in living jewels and gems and more
Described with words that fall short as I bow before Him
Splendid in Love and Kindness
Fire of consuming justice and compassion move out before Him
A river of crystal waters of Life soon to follow,
The only personal refuge from this world, only refuge in eternity.

Temple shelter, Divine tent filled with powerful golden angel wings
Zion’s covering Glory Light our most intimate Peace and Joy.
As the storm clouds gather in darkness about us now
Do we not see?
Do we not hear?
The Voice of our Lord has spoken about judgment
In our hearts and souls clear as His Spirit in the crystal pool before Him
All Creation observed from the Throne with fire eyes that see infinite details;
With Love and Peace, the only Shepherd
Fellowship with His Holy Spirit always near
Comfort of the Shepherd’s hand in ours,
His staff we see whether close by or at a distance!
“The nations are but dust on His scales; less than nothing.”
We have been given understanding to know what is coming
Though our land, our country bathed in deceit and propaganda
The endless lies from those who seek only to control;
One day to be overrun, violence will force submission
As internal conflict rages, external forces destroy
And in the end, a giant earthquake that divides the land forever!
There is only One who stands strong
Who is Lord over all He has made
Who sits on His Sovereign Throne of Judgement and knows His own,
Those who follow and take eternal refuge in Him alone!
