BLEST BE THE LORD
Blest be the Lord, blest be the Lord
The God of mercy, the God who saves.
I shall not fear, the dark of night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day.
1. He will release me from the nets of all the foes
He will protect me from their wicked hands.
Beneath the shadow of his wings I will rejoice
To find a dwelling place secure.
2. I need not shrink before the terrors of the night,
Nor stand alone before the light of day.
No harm shall come to me, no arrow strike me down,
No evil settle in my soul.
3. Although a thousand strong have fallen at my side
I’ll not be shaken with the Lord at hand.
His faithful love is all the armour that I need
To wage my battle with my foe.
