Shelter me from the wind

Shelter me from the wind,
O Lord my God, when fears are haunting me;
in your protection let me find
complete tranquillity.

2   Father, from violent storms
be my defender, be my hiding-place;
hold me, enclose me in your arms,
content me with your grace.

3   Like a refreshing stream
in my dry desert heart where nothing grows,
O Spirit, pour your life within
till my life overflows.

4   And as the shadow vast
of a huge rock across a weary land,
O may your cross, Lord Jesus, cast
its shade on burning sand.

5   Make me a shelter, too,
a refuge as the tempests wildly beat,
may I bring others life from you
and shield them from the heat.

BASED ON ISAIAH 32:2
