Worship Resource: God My Rock, My Strong Deliverer
The instrumental accompaniment begins before the first reading and continues until the song’s conclusion.
ONE OR ALL SPEAKING: Psalm 62:5-6 NRSV
For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from Him.
He alone is my Rock and my Salvation,
My Fortress; I shall not be shaken.
Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah, pilgrim through this barren land.
I am weak, but Thou art mighty; hold me with Thy powerful hand.
Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more
Feed me till I want no more
ONE OR ALL SPEAKING: Psalm 62:7-8 NRSV
On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
My Mighty Rock, my Refuge is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, O people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.
Open now the crystal fountain, whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar lead me all my journey through.
Strong Deliverer, Strong Deliverer, be Thou still my Strength and Shield.
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield.
