The Promise Is: Refuge

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah. For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations. He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him. So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows. 
~*~Psalms 61~*~

When I cry, be my refuge, O God. 
When my heart is overwhelmed, be my rock, O God. 
When the enemy roars, be my tower, O God.
When calamity falls about me, hold me beneath Your wings, O God.

Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: 
yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, 
until these calamities be overpast.
For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds. 
Psalm 57:1 & 10
