Our God was a refugee

Added 4th September 2017


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

Our God was a refugee,
one who flees to find their safety.
Our God was as a hunted child,
once exiled from home and country.
Our God wasn’t welcomed home
by those he’d known as friends and neighbours,
with nowhere to lay his head,
and forced to tread through many dangers.

But our God is a fortress strong
and a home for the orphaned one
and our hope for the day to come.

Our God was a man of grief
who came with peace but met suspicion
from those in the seats of power
who hide their fear behind religion.
The crowds that had once embraced him
turned their face from his affliction,
and, carrying a mark of shame,
he bore the pain of his rejection.

Our God knew a lonely death,
his final breath an act of mercy,
for heavy upon that cross
was every curse of hate and cruelty.
They left him inside a grave
but he was raised in life and glory,
now shining with hope for those
who share the sorrows of his story.

For our God is a fortress strong
and a home for the orphaned one
and our hope for the day to come.
