For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12
Why do we act so foolish and unwise?
No secrets from you can we ever hide.
Should You not be our one and only guide?
Your handiwork is proclaimed in the skies!
Your love is better than some worldly prize!
In You we seek to faithfully abide.
Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord will provide.
Blessed and highly favored in His eyes.
The one who trusts will not be put to shame.
Surround us with Your favor as a shield.
Upon the cross is where You placed the blame.
The glory of the Lord will be revealed.
It’s in surrender we find victory.
A vow fulfilled for us at Calvary.
2 Corinthians 5:12 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. (NLT)
