The Lord is my strength, I shall not abdicate
He gives me rest when my body is weak
He comforts me when my soul is in pain
He humbles me in the pride of my victories
And uplifts my spirit in the agony of defeat
He disciplines me in the way, for His name’s sake
He trains me in the truth, for His honor
And plans the paths to life, for His Glory
Though I sail through the storm of life’s inequities
And charge through the winds of wickedness
I shall fear no evil, for You are with me
Your truth is the belt that hold me together
Your righteousness guards my heart and breath
My feet are equipped with your gospel of peace
Your faith is like a shield that protects me from attack
You put on my head a helmet of salvation
You train me with your Word, which is sharper than a sword.
Truly I will persevere!
The fiery arrows of evil have been quenched!
Your Son has overcome the whole world!
Oh death, where is your sting?
The grave is no more!
I will not trust in my own strength but trust in the strength of God Almighty!
Through His Word alone he has slayed armies
Through His power he swept away nations into oblivion
Through His Son He has conquered the wayward world and the grave of sin
The battle is won!
It is finished!
Truly Christ will reign as King all the days of my life
And He will share the spoils of victory
Forever and ever….
