when I’m overwhelmed and cannot see the light,
when others mock your presence and discourage my trust,
I know that your hand covers me,
that I’m under the darkness and shelter of your wings.
You are my shield and my refuge.
I am nothing, yet Your Spirit and presence within are my glory,
your love cherishes, honors, and values me.
I cry out loud to you,
in wonder that you would receive my words, my voice,
and I weep as you turn your ear,
and answer from your holy mountain.
My sleep is sweet,
Lord you sustain my breath,
I awaken to another day because you sustain me,
you are life itself.
I refuse to be afraid or intimated of my old enemies,
bondages, and evil all around,
Lord I trust you.
Arise, save and deliver me once more!
You confuse my enemies,
they know not their right hand from their left,
you strike their face, shatter their teeth.
You are a defender of the righteous,
protecting and blessing your people.
I praise you Lord,
how beautiful is your salvation,
I bless your Name!
