The Lord Is My Salvation!

The Lord Is My Salvation!


The Lord is my light and salvation.  Whom shall I fear?

He’s my protector and friend.

  And is always near!


He’s the stronghold of my life...  Whom shall I be afraid!

He is clothed with righteousness... 

His majesty is displayed!


Though evil men advance, and my enemies attack me…

They will stumble and fall!

 For the Lord is with me!


Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear!

The Lord will fight for me,

 and my enemy shall disappear!


In the day of trouble, the Lord will keep me safe!

He will hide and put me on a solid resting place!


At his tabernacle, will I sacrifice shouts of joy!

Singing and making music to the Lord, I shall enjoy!


I am confident in the Lord’s goodness,

 in the land of the living!

I will enter his gates with praise

and a heart of thanksgiving!


I shall wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart!

Being in his presence,

 is a good place to start!


You, my Lord bring goodness

 and life to my soul!

I shall sing of your love and mercy,

wherever I go!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
