Lord, you have become our refuge from generation to generation. In the first and second generations, you were our refuge. You were our refuge so that we might be born who before were not. You were our refuge so that we might be born anew who were evil. You were a refuge to feed those that did forsake you. You are a refuge to raise up and direct your children. You are our refuge. We will not turn back from you, for you have delivered us from all our evils and filled us with your own good things. You give good things now; you deal softly with us so that we will not be wearied in the way. You correct and chastise and strike and direct us so that we may not wander from the way. Therefore, whether you deal softly with us so that we will not be wearied in the way, or chastise us so that we do not wander from the way, you are our refuge, O Lord.
