Castle Keep


The truth you have kept

As the stronghold’s one treasure

The Ages would change it

They scarce know its measure

And mortals would flinch

As Circumstance calls

But you Lord are constant

Your rule never falls

The clean and the good

Are extolled in your Book

And widow and orphan

Alone to you look

Compassion unequaled

Whatever the cost

A rock for the drowning

A home for the lost

And this brings great comfort

For men are mere dust

And princes just passing

While you keep our trust

The heart of your Castle

Intact for all time

A truth ever righteous

I thrill to call mine.


Psalm 146:
