How the mind can wander, how the heart can stray.
Suddenly you're on the edge of darkness.
How it makes me ponder, how I'm led away
Down a path that leaves me worn and tarnished.
Battling with the will within,
I have known all along that I should lean on you.
Cause I'm never strong enough to fight it on my own.

Shelter me, the ways of the world are at my feet.
Shelter me from the desires that deceive.
You are the fortress I need, shelter me.

Well, how the mind can alter, how the heart can change,
When you set your sights on holiness.
And though at times you falter, it's the only way
You can find a place of peace to rest.
Safe from danger surrounding me,
Safe from looming defeat when temptation is at my door,
Lord, I need a harbor, be my souls retreat.

Shelter me, the ways of the world are at my feet.
Shelter me from the desires that deceive.
You are the fortress I need, shelter me, yeah.

You will never leave me stranded, fending for myself.
When the enemy advances, you are there to help,
Standing in the gap for me whenever I grow weak.
You are my deliverer, the refuge that I seek.
I should lean on you (yeah, oh)
Cause I'm never strong enough to fight it on my own.

Shelter me, the ways of the world are at my feet.
Shelter me from the desires that deceive.
Oh, you are the fortress I need, shelter me.

Shelter me, shelter me, shelter.
