The Refuge of God

The Refuge of God

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

The Refuge of God


There’s no other place to taste

The power of such grace.

A tower of safety

When the floods of life are many.


A harbor to run to

When hard times we go through.

A quiet still when the world is not--

The refuge of God.


A spring overflowing,

A peace worth knowing.

Like a crystal river,

It flows from the Giver.


The most tender touch

Sends deliverance in a rush

Clearing every fog--

The refuge of God.


A fountain that never dries,

As His mercy never hides.

A Living Water…

That is the Father.


With all of life’s bumps,

We still have the triumph.

For we stand on the Rock--

In the refuge of God.
