Refuge Tonight
Words and music by Robin C. Kitchen | Copyright 2014 All Rights Reserved

VERSE 1
Come, morning breeze
To the westward side
Here am I
With the lost and bleeding again
Always wounded at my own hands
And I donít know whyÖ
Oh, Lord, I donít know why

PRE-CHORUS
Will You take me from this broken place
And place me on the rock again?
Only You can reach me now
When the fever breaks
And I am breaking
Lord, beneath this cold regret
Only You can save me now

CHORUS
Calling, Iím calling out
Lord, be a refuge tonightÖ
Remind me, the war isnít mine
Iím down, but not out
And You wonít let me out of Your sight
No, not for a little while
Darling, keep your eyes on the prize
Head up, hold it high
Walk in this light
Darling, keep your eyes on the prize
What is seen as a lifetime
Is just for a little while

VERSE 2
If not for these
I donít know where this heart would reside
Still mourning the loss of Eden
Love, Iím missing what Youíve shown me
And a thorn in my side
Is this thirst I canít deny

PRE-CHORUS
Will you take me from this broken place
And place me on the rock again?
Only You can reach me now
When the fever breaks
And I am breaking
Lord, beneath this cold regret
Only You can save me now

CHORUS
Calling, Iím calling out
Lord, be a refuge tonightÖ
Remind me, the war isnít mine
Iím down, but not out
And You wonít let me out of Your sight
Not even for a little while
Darling, keep your eyes on the prize
Head up, hold it high
Walk in this light
Darling, keep your eyes on the prize
What is seen as a lifetime
Is just for a little while

Iím calling out... (x4)
