His Help, His Forgiveness

I look for help, so where does it come from?
Not by my hand or my brothers does it come.
So I look in the valley and all is quiet and still;
I lift up my eyes but my help is not on the hill.

My help comes from the Lord the Creator of all;
He’s my strength and shield He will not let me fall.
I fear not for the Lord protects and watches keeps;
He is my champion He neither slumbers nor sleeps.

The Lord keeps and protects me night and day;
His words of loving promises guide me on His way.
His precepts and laws teach me wrong from right;
And His fervent love stands guard through the night.

The Lord blessed me with a treasure of a great wife;
He gives me the wisdom to accept His good life.
And when I fall flat on my face and fail making mess;
He dust me off and reminds me of His forgiveness.

Forever and Ever
I lack nothing for the Lord is my guide;
His loving blessings He does not hide.
He grants me rest in times of plenty,
He provides drink where there isn’t any.
His leads me to where quiet waters flow;
His peace refreshes and calms me as I go.
His hand guides me along His pathway,
From His word and His love I will not stray.
In dark times with my body racked with pain,
When I feel alone and think I’m going insane;
Even though the grave lies open before me,
In this time I have no fear for He is with me.
His laws prefect and right are my guide;
And His love comforted me when I cried.
He is my champion and faithful protector;
He is my healer, my Lord God and my Savior.
He called me and anointed my head with oil;
My portion overflowed as from fertile soil.
My life He has blessed, He will leave me never;
With Him in glory I will live forever and ever.
