A Shield to Me


Verse 1

Lord, You know how weak I am

Father, You have seen

All the wickedness in me

Make the foulest clean

Right and left I now forsake

For my wandering feet

Lord, You know the path I take    

Make it straight for me     



Be my glory, lift my head

Lord, deliver me

From Your mountain, hear my cry

Be, O Lord, a shield to me


Verse 2

In the night I whisper low

In the dark I sigh

Yet there is a truth I know

You sustain my life

Answered prayer renews my soul

You have heard my cry

Sin no longer takes its toll

Peaceful rest is mine 


Verse 3

Shield above and shield below

Shield my every part

Shield within and shield without

Shield my feeble heart

All the darts of Satan thrown

Cannot cause me sting

I am shielded by His grace

From the enemy


Verse 4

Everlasting, You are God

Faithful to the end

You have walked upon this sod

To call me a friend

Lord, salvation does belong

In Your righteous hand

Make of me Your very own

Satisfy Your plan

But You, O Lord, are a shield about me,

My glory, and the One who lifts my head.
