View Lyrics
VERSE 1:
The Lord is a home for all the oppressed
in times of trouble and need.
To all who will come and trust in His name,
their refuge and strength He will be.

CHORUS:
The needy will not be forsaken,
and the hope of the poor will not die,
for God who is mighty in judgment
does not forget their cry.

VERSE 2:
Arise, O my Lord, and answer my call,
my heart cries out to be heard.
I've no other hope than Your gracious love;
I trust and cling to Your word.

CHORUS:
The needy will not be forsaken,
and the hope of the poor will not die,
for God who is mighty in judgment
does not forget their cry.

BRIDGE:
The Lord has heard our cry,
the Lord has heard our cry.
The Lord has not forsaken us,
the Lord has heard our cry.

VERSE 3:
So sing out to the God who sits on the throne,
proclaim His marvelous ways.
Our rescue has come! For all He has done
we offer our lives in praise.

CHORUS:
The needy will not be forsaken,
and the hope of the poor will not die,
for God who is mighty in judgment
does not forget their cry.
