Lyrics

In the valley of the shadow
Where my plans turn to dust
When I’m walking through the unknown
In the waiting, I will trust
When the sky falls, when the flood comes
Let the rushing waters rise
When my soul is worn and weary
And I’ve got no place to hide

I know, You won’t let me go
Your fortress for my soul
My helper, You are my shelter
You’re my hope, my anchor in the storm
Your love unbreakable
My helper, You are my shelter

On the mountain, You surround me
My comfort and my song
Your promise is my refuge
‘Cause I know Your love is strong
You have raised me from the ashes
Set my feet on solid ground

I know, You won’t let me go
Your fortress for my soul
My helper, You are my shelter
You’re my hope, my anchor in the storm
Your love unbreakable
My helper, You are my shelter

You are the way, You are the truth
You are the breath inside of my lungs
You give me strength when I am weak
You are the one who lifts me up
You are the way, You are the truth
You are the breath inside of my lungs
You give me strength when I am weak
You are the one who lifts me up
I know, You won’t let me go
You are my shelter

Oh I know, You won’t let me go
Your fortress for my soul
My helper, You are my shelter
You’re my hope, my anchor in the storm
Your love unbreakable
My helper, You are my shelter
You’re my hope, my anchor in the storm
Your love unbreakable
My helper, You are my shelter

You are the way, You are the truth
You are the breath inside of my lungs
You give me strength when I am weak
You are the one who lifts me up

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

This was probably one of the most timely performances in the history of CMB, the annual conference for Christian Music Broadcasters. During the conference in Orlando, we were sitting in the path of Irma. Most attendees were, at the very least, slightly concerned about getting stranded in Orlando and being stuck in the path of the storm. The final afternoon of the conference, Carrollton performed this song. I had heard it a few weeks earlier and from even then, I was excited to introduce this song to you. This is a fun way to hide an amazing truth in the hearts of those who need to be reminded that He is our shelter... now or at some time down the road.
