Your scriptures are my sanctuary.
I run to them in my anguish;
they calm my fears
and sooth my troubled heart.
They are a balm to my soul!
Your Word is my living sword;
giving me victory over the Enemy –
bringing him to his knees –
lifting me to my feet!
It is my foundation!
Some may trust in tanks and missiles
but I trust in the Word!
You answer my cries from your holy refuge
and fight for me with your powerful right hand.
In You is my victory!
(I based this poem on Psalm 20)
