There's a woman who tries to hide
From a man who's dark inside
For her children she says a prayer
Fear and desperation keeps her there
Will redemption come around in time to save her?
She wants to run from the life that he gave her she cries

"Love, come and Shelter Me
Your light is all I need to survive
Take me from where the cold wind's blowin'
To where the healing water's flowin'
Love, come and Shelter Me."

And there's a beggar, feels like half a man
He fought the war, now he fights the pain
He was a hero in a foreign land
Now he's flat broke and stranded in the rain
But his dignity runs deeper than the ocean
In a voice that trembles with emotion, he cries

"Love, come and Shelter Me
Your light is all I need to survive
In a world where the cold winds blowin'
Will your love be a shelter for me?"

So blind, yet we try to see
Fallin' short of what could be
All hopes and dreams goin' nowhere
So we pray for a new tomorrow
To wash our sorrows away

Pray for a new tomorrow
To wash our sorrows away

"Love, come and Shelter Me"
