When I wander through the desert
And I'm longing for my home
All my dreams have gone astray
When I'm stranded in the valley
And I'm tired and all alone
It seams like I've lost my way


I go running to your mountain
Where you mercy sets me free


You are my strong tower
A shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting King
You are my strong tower
Fortress when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I see


In the middle of my darkness
In the midst of all my fear
You're refuge and my hope
When the storm of life is raging
And the thunders all I hear
You speak softly to my soul


Now I'm running to your mountain
Where you mercy sets me free


You are my strong tower
A shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting King
You are my strong tower
Fortress when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I see
And Your face is all I see
Yeah... Your face is all I see


I go running to your mountain
Where you mercy sets me free

You are my strong tower
A shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting king
You are my strong tower
Fortress when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy
(Your name is true and holy)
You are my strong tower
A shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting king
You are my strong tower
Fortress when I'm weak
Your name is true and holy
And your face is all I see

    What words, coming from addiction and alcholism it is easy to see the desert and be longing for our home. He truly is a strong tower and rock to stand on. Thank you kutless stay in the blessing.

    Strong tower is a beautiful song, and it carries a strong message. I believe that what kutless is saying here is that no matter what the world throws at you, you can always trust in the lord jesus christ to welcome you into his loving arms. He is our strong tower, shelter over us, fortress when we're weak, and always will be.

    To me it means like a place where you can go where no harm can come to you. When you feel and even know when your own limits are tested is when god (jesus through his holy spirit) provides a way to shelter me though bad times. Its wonderful to know that i can go to him when things seem at their worst. When i earnestly seek jesus christ. Hes there for me... A shelter in an evil changing world.

    To me strong towner means like it is saying like when you feel like the world is crashing down on you and you feel like you have no where to go you can run to god and he will protect you and he is like your shelter. It is a very good song.
