Psalm 28:7 “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped…” (NIV)*
When arrows fly around me
as troubles march my way,
oh, that I’d trust the Savior —
a strength and shield always.
Pride must fall dethroned
when enemy closes in,
for help waits with my Savior —
strength is found in him.
And yes, at times I falter
and fail to seek his face,
yet, my Savior does not leave —
it’s then he pours unending grace.
