1.
I am a grain of sand Swept with tides of unknown shores You are the ocean mighty Full of life both great and small I am a single fading light In the cold night sky You are the bright morning star Shining bright for all to see I am a lone drop of rain Falling and quickly forgotten You are the cleansing flood Who takes away all untrue I long to be so much more… More of what you are I am nothing without you For you are the great I am
2.
I hear and my insides tremble My lips quiver at the sound Rottenness enters my bones I tremble while I stand As I await the day of distress To come against those who attack us I will rejoice in the Lord Rejoice in the God of my deliverance The Lord God is my strength He will set my feet like the deer He will let me walk upon the heights

4.
In the passing of the eternal What stands the test of time? All of your possessions will burn Everything rusts, dies, decays All this world can offer is trivial Meaningless unto the grave To put away treasures here on earth Is useless at the end of days Can you not see the signs? Can you not feel the pain? This world as we know it is dying The only escape: be born again I will seek refuge in the woods To be alone to pray Just as the Christ, who often withdrew Unto the mountains Beside the streams Into the forest Among the trees In His creation I find peace And pray

Night falls and I am alone With my thoughts, my failures The harsh reality of wood and stone Revives my spirit again The solitude of God's creation Brings peace, cleanses my sins To be alone, in the wilderness Brings a freedom to pray All around, branches, like hands Offer up their praise And with each gust of wind They bow to the King of Grace A fire within me burns And grows each passing moment I must do more with this life, this gift of being Beneath infinite stars I ponder the eternal And know I'm never truly alone Father, here I am Please forgive me I pray you welcome me home

about

"If you like black metal, if you like atmospheric music, both beautiful and cruel, if you crave something that sweeps you away—this is for you." (4.5/5 stars) – HM Magazine

"This is haunting black metal, the echoes of solitude rather than the chilly hate of misanthropy. If you're in the mood for that, you're not gonna find much better in recent times than Seeking Refuge." (4/5) – Sputnik Music

"The overall atmosphere is somewhat dark and foreboding but somehow comforting at the same time. There is hope in the darkness." (8/10) – The Metal Resource
