Where can you escape --
Where can you go
That God is not there --
I ask you
Is there anywhere...
The answer
Is that there is no place
That you can escape
From His discipline
And His grace --
For He is omnipresent --
His love is perfect --
His divinity eternal
And His shadow
Of protection and love
Hover as He awaits
Our coming above...

Where can you find
Peace and harbor
From life's storms --
Where can you
Find respite
When a thundering
Cloud of life forms --
Where can you seek
And actually find
Your sought-after
Peace of mind...
It is within
Our Father's sacred arms
That exist
Beneath the shadow
Of His wings
Forevermore --
And it is here
That you will find
He will your soul
Restore...

Where can you escape
And find protection
By our heavenly Father
Except in His arms
For all else
You will find
Only harms...

Look for His arms
For they are ever so near
As you are present
In His space
Each and every day
Even though
You may not understand
That truly
You have found your way --
Your way of escape
From all ill and woe
For in His arms
You will find that you
Have found release
And you have discovered
The path on which
You should go...

The Father's sacred arms
Await you any moment
Of any day
If you simply seek Him
Along your earthly way...
His arms
Share the harbor
Of His eternal love --
Evidenced to mankind
From His throne
Above...
Seek the harbor
Of His love
And feel
The hovering
Of His protection
And safety
Within the storm --
For then the present threat
Will pass
And you will have
Escaped imminent
Harm...

It is here
Within His
Sacred arms
That you will find
Perfect love
As God reaches down
Harboring you
Within the storm
From His throne
Above...
