METER:  88 88 888
TUNE:  THE SOLID ROCK
This is the meter of the hymn "My Hope Is Built" (aka "The Solid Rock")

1.  In you, O Lord, I seek ref-uge;
    So let me nev-er be a-shamed.
    In right-eous-ness de-liv-er me.
    Turn to me now, and save my life!
    A rock of ref-uge be to me,
    A fort-ress where I will be safe.
    O Lord, you are my sure de-fense.
2.  Lord, lead me and di-rect my ways.
    Take me out of the hid-den trap,
    For Lord, you are my hid-ing place.
    My times are al-ways in your care,
    Save me from all my en-e-mies,
    Look up-on me with shin-ing face,
    And save me by your stead-fast love.
