Blest be the Lord


Blest be the Lord, Blest be the Lord,

He God of Mercy the God who saves

I shall not fear the dark of night

Nor the arrow that flies by day


He will release me from the net of sinful ones

He will protect me from their wicked hands

Beneath the shadow of his wings I will rejoice

To find a dwelling place secure


I will not shrink before the terrors of the night

Nor stand alone before the light of day

No harm shall come to me no arrows strike me down

No evil settle in my soul


Although a thousand ones have fallen at my side

Ill not be shaken with the Lord at hand

His faithful love is all the armour that I need

To wage my battle with the foe.
