When You Live in the Home of the Lord


When You Live in the Home of the Lord

This song was written one year after our home in Pinellas Park, Florida was totaled by a tornado in October of 1992. In God’s providence I had prepared in advance a sermon on Psalm 91 which I delivered the day after the storm. That passage from God’s word was an amazing comfort to us and others in our congregation who also lost their homes. This song is based upon the encouragement of that Psalm.

When You Live in the Home of the Lord

He’s a shelter when the storm winds blow.
He’s a light when the shadows grow.
His word is true, and he always comes through,
when you live in the home of the Lord.

He’s a dwelling that never falls.
He’s a fortress with unyielding walls.
The terrors may scare, but he’s always there,
when you live in the home of the Lord.

There’s no time of the day you need fear,
not a sigh that your Lord doesn’t hear,
not a place you can go where the Lord doesn’t know,
when you live in the home of the Lord.

When the darkness of night closes ’round,
when there rumbles a threatening sound,
the Lord’s by your side where he calls you to hide
when you live in the home of the Lord.
when you live in the home of the Lord.
