You are the temple of the living God
(2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).
1. Tempests rage
Beyond this church,
Yet all is calm inside.
2. Whirlwinds roar
Beyond these walls,
So here, Lord God, I hide.
3. Floods rise up
Beyond these doors,
But I will fear no ill,
4. For though life ends
Beyond this place,
You whisper: Peace, be still.
1. The wrath of the Lord will come like a storm! (Jeremiah 23:19; NET).
With his love, he will calm all your fears (Zephaniah 3:17; NLT).
2. A whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury (Jeremiah 23:19; NKJV).
The Lord is my fortress; my God is the mighty rock where I hide (Psalm 94:22; NLT).
3. The floods have risen up, O Lord. The floods have roared like thunder; the floods have lifted their pounding waves (Psalm 93:3; NLT).
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).
4. The Lord gives both life and death (1 Samuel 2:6; NLT).
No one can live forever; all will die. No one can escape the power of the grave (Psalm 89:48; NLT).
After the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper (1 Kings 19:12; NLT).
He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm (Mark 4:39; NKJV).
