Song title: God Of Refuge (Psalm 16)
Music: Greg de Blieck, John Wyeth
Lyrics: Greg de Blieck
CCLI no: 7117207

God of refuge, be my saviour
God of everlasting good
You alone have satisfied me
More than water more than food
More than any tempting promise
Man made gods cannot fulfill
Weak and frail they rust and perish
While our God sustains us still


All your saints reveal your glory
They inspire my heart’s delight
Bringing forth their testimony
Shining in their Saviour’s light
See the sorrows yet increasing
Of the idol’s helpless slave
God alone deserves unceasing
Praises He alone can save


He shall choose my heart’s direction
Granting wisdom through the night
Giving strength imparting blessing
God shall guide me in the right
This is why my heart rejoices
Gladness fills my every breath
Evermore his love shall lead me
I shall not be lost to death

If it were left to us, our hearts would always make the wrong choice. Without God, we cannot be good. But how amazing it is, that He awakes in us a desire to be satisfied in Him, to choose the good, to learn wisdom, to love His people, and to cast off our misplaced faith in our worthless idols.


God alone deserves unceasing praises – He alone can save.
