This song, with its simple direct lyrics, encourages us to place our trust in God during turbulent times. I love its straightforward and personal plea for help, recalling several of the Psalms, each bringing to mind images a God who is both strong and loving, exalted and personal. The full context of these scriptures is worth looking up, as each is preceded and followed with great dramatic verse. What I find especially beautiful is how the psalmists often portray God as the majestic mighty ruler, but also a close loving parent and protector. Indeed, there is no social distancing when connecting with God. As Richard Rohr to aptly says, “God is both intimate, and ultimate.”  Check out a few of the following lyrics and supporting scriptures:
Lyric: “Hide me now under Your wings”
Guard me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings,
Lyric: “Cover me within Your mighty hand”
You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
Lyric: “You are King over the flood”
The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
Lyric: “I will be still and know You are God”
Be still, and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations,
I am exalted in the earth.
