Our Refuge in Every Storm

O Lord, you are our refuge in every storm.
Hide us in your own presence
from all the violence in the world.
By your holy love and fear,
keep us from sins of temper
and of the tongue.

“from all the violence in the world” in the original is “from the provoking of all men.”
