God is my lamp giving me light,
Brightens my thoughts with His insight;
And lightens the dark like the day,
That keeps me from going astray.
Through God I leap over the wall,
Never to falter nor to fall;
Because He is my total strength,
Persevering at any length.
That is why I never reject,
For the way of God is perfect;
Because His Word is tried and true,
As it helps me with each day through.
God is my shield of protection,
With refuge from each affliction;
That my foes directing towards me,
Are deflected far out to sea.
God is as solid as a rock,
As a fortress shielding the flock;
From elements of wind and rain,
That will bring misery and pain.
He is my source of salvation,
That faith has a firm foundation;
For God has strength within His arm,
To protect me from any harm.
So I will abide and obey,
For He guides me the perfect way;
Knowing that there will no mistake,
Since I know He will not forsake.
