Counsel and comfort and wisdom come calling
as your strong right arm keeps me from falling.

Justified, sanctified, washed in your blood
I’m cleansed and redeemed in your holy flood.

From Heaven to man to Calvary’s tree
now seated, enthroned you watch over me.

Chains of bondage and sin are broken
as your word alone is truthfully spoken.

Cloaked in majesty you wear your crown
your scepter sparking light all around.

Angels in waiting to heed your call
they too bear me up, preventing my fall.

I’ll never deserve the goodness you give
nor your promise of Heaven where I’ll one day live.

Deserving or not, you paid the cost
when you willingly gave yourself to the cross.

You spoke into my darkness, “This one is mine”
I looked up; I believed and saw your light shine!

Not by my power nor by my might
but yours cause those angels to take their swift flight.

They battle demons at war over me
as my worship and praise bring sure victory.

I’ve put on the armor and I will not fear
the victory is yours, Lord… what’s that I hear?

The shofar is blowing! There it is, clear and true!
A strong call to battle… I know what to do!

Taking every thought captive, I will stand firm
as those demons of satan tremble and squirm.

I speak out your Word as I raise up the sword!
Those demons must flee in your presence, my Lord.

Counsel and comfort and wisdom come calling
as your strong right arm keeps me from falling.

Justified, sanctified, washed in your blood
I’m cleansed and redeemed in your holy flood.

From Heaven to man to Calvary’s tree
now seated, enthroned you watch over me.
