The Lord is My Keeper


Christ  promised to never leave us
He has promised to never forsake.
If we draw near Him He will draw near us
He can keep us from falling for His name’s sake

We are living and moving and being
In Him and In Him alone
We`ve received His indwelling presence
And now we are not our own.

The Lord is my Keeper, The Lord is my Shade
The Sun shall not smite me by day
The Moon shall not smite me by night
If I abide and will fight the good fight

We abide in Christ and apart from Him
There is nothing we can do or be
And no one can take us from His hand
For He will forever abide in me

Bridge-
So convict me and kill me
Humble and guard me I`ve prayed
Change me, conform me till I will be
Into your image remade!

Make your Now all the richer and deeper
At the fountain of Forever to drink
For youll surely be kept by your Keeper
It is so near. And its later than you think!

Conformed to the likeness of Christ
Presented at His throne as faultless!
Becoming a living sacrifice
Transformed into His righteousness

The Lord is my Keeper, The Lord is my Shade
The Sun shall not smite me by day
The Moon shall not smite me by night
If I abide and will fight the good fight
