TUNE: EIN FESTE BURG
This is the tune for the hymn "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"
1. In you, O Lord, I take ref-uge;
Let me be a-shamed nev-er.
In just-ice save and res-cue me;
In-cline your ear and save me.
O Lord, be unto me
A rock for my safe-ty,
A fort-ress of great strength,
In which I may be saved,
For you're my rock and fort-ress.
2. Save me, O God, from wick-ed hands,
From the un-just and cru-el.
For you, Lord God, are all my hope;
From days of youth, I trust you.
Upon you I have leaned,
Yes, ev-er since my birth;
You are the one who took
Me from my moth-er's womb.
I will at all times praise you.
