When the Fires Rage and the Flood Waters Rise
Refuge and ever-present help in times of trouble
The earth is being swallowed by the sea and consumed by fire
We are being swept away by rising waters.
We are walking through fire and getting burned
Breath of life, we cannot breathe.
Where are You?
We are weary and worn out
Wrap us in Your wings
Take us in Your shelter
Lift us high upon the rock
We’ve seen what You can do, God
Do it again!
You are our hope and our help
Give us strength and courage to survive the chaos
Grant us glimpses of your grace as we rescue and rebuild
Inspire in us a vision of a future we can welcome and infuse us with the determination to make it happen
Ever-present help in times of trouble, we find our rest in you
