In the Presence of Jehovah (Poem)

Updated on May 6, 2015

When I'm in Your presence,

Lord, God, Jehovah!

I dwell in peace and safety,

You lift me up to soar

high above all adversity,

Who is like You?

No other can compare, or

do what You do for me

To whom else can I ascribe glory?

Who can I give honor or praise?

When only You are worthy,

I will attribute greatness to none other

You O Lord are true,

Your ways are comely, and

Your countenance heals my infirmities

Liken to the sun shining

in all of its power,

All calamities must disappear

at Your presence, and

can’t come near Your dwelling place,

You strengthen me to stand

in confidence before You,

By the precious blood of Jesus

I have audience with You,

All insecurities shrink, and subside

as I delight in You,

You are my high place,

You are my strong tower,

My fortress, and my all and all

When I am in the presence of Jehovah

I dwell where harm dare not tread.

      How inspiring. Yes, God is our hope, our strength and our refuge from the storm. Sometimes it may seem that the Lord is not there for you, but I have learned that the Lord stretches us to our limit so we can be everything He created us to be. We are fearfully and wonderfully made and being everything He created us to be brings Him glory....Amen!
