O There Is a Shelter

Words and Music by Garrison Doles

refrain
Time and times and half a time
Out of the reach of this struggling world
Time and times and half a time
You have prepared a place
O there is a shelter
O there is a shelter
O there is a safe and sheltered place
O there is a shelter
O there is a shelter
Give me wings to fly into your grace

Dragon is waiting, besieging my life
Standing there staring at me
How can I face down this scary old dragon
How can I ever get free
You have draped me in stars of the firmament
You have clothed me in light of the sun
You have called me to sit at your table
You have made me your favorite one

Take me away from this trouble
That hunts me like a hungry beast
I cannot bear it
I cannot bear it
The way that thing is looking at me

Trying to be a good soldier
Keeping my head down
Keeping my nose clean
Always try do my part in this struggle
I’m out of my depth here
I’m over my head here
Looking for you to rescue me
Rescue me

repeat refrain
