our shield and our salvation
in the face of
evil and all its threats.
To a familiar tune.
Evil opposes You, my Lord,
And those You free from sin.
It sneers and shouts its deadly lies
And whispers here within.
You are my shield, O living Christ,
My truth, my strength, my light,
My joy, my song throughout the day,
My keeper through the night.
I can lie down and safely rest,
Secure in all You are –
Unfailing light when all is dark,
The Bright and Morning Star.
You are salvation, O my God,
Pure love in all You do,
And all are holy, safe, and strong
Who simply trust in You.
