My dwelling place is God Most High

My refuge and my fortress

When plague and pestilence draw nigh

I’m hidden in His Presence

When terrors fall and arrows fly

His shield will be my safety

When stones across my pathway lie

On angels’ wings I’m carried

verse 2:

My dwelling place is God Most High

A present help in danger

I rest secure in love’s pure light

Beneath my Master’s favor

He freed me from the fowler’s snare

Where sin and shame had bound me

Deceived I’d made my refuge there

Till fearless He came for me


Wonderful, powerful

My hope and my defender

Mighty God, Emmanuel

My dwelling place forever

verse 3:

My dwelling place is God Most High

I’ll never seek another

For I am His and He is mine

My heart He’ll keep forever

I know the Name on Whom I call

He promises to answer

With life He satisfies my soul

And crowns me with His pleasure
