By your mighty hand you lifted me,
Your power my enemies did see…
For your loving blessing in all you do
With my last breath I will praise you.
You alone are my God and my King,
I know you are with me in everything:
In weakness when illness seized me
I called on you and you set me free,
You paid the price my soul to save
And rose again, a new life you gave…
I’ll sing your praises–I’ll never quit–
You spared me from that evil pit.
In your mercy I rest day and night,
That I may praise you in your holy light…
Wrapped in the warmth of your grace,
I rejoice in the piece of your holy place.
The storms will come and winds blow
But I’ll not be shaken in what I know:
The Lord my God has shown mercy to me
And my life now will a living witness be.
