ALMIGHTY GOD, MY STRENGTH AND SHIELD
(Tune: I Heard The Voice Of Jesus Say #225 CMD)
Almighty God, my Strength and Shield,
Omnipotent, my King!
His power upholds my feeble frame
And governs everything:
Though I was born a sinner dead
And wandered far away,
He gave me life by sovereign power
And took my guilt away.
Through my Redeemer's precious blood,
I know the power of God;
For by His blood and saving power,
I am a child of God:
When He appears the tempter flies
And all my fears depart:
He holds me in His mighty hand,
And He secures my heart.
Lord, evermore exert Your power
To guide me in Your way,
Until I reach my home above
At Your appointed day:
There I will ever praise the Lamb
For His redeeming blood
With everlasting songs of grace,
Triumphant in my God!
