1 Be gracious to me, Lord,
and hold my spirit fast,
that I may shelter by your side
until the storm is past.

2 Though snares are set for me,
yet will I sleep in peace,
for I have asked the care of God
whose love shall never cease.

3 My soul, awake and sing,
such boundless love recall;
exalt God's name above the skies,
God's glory over all!

After Psalm 57, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
