Battlefield Jesus

Always with me, in me,  through me!~~always near and always true,

Always loving, kind and gentle, always loving~~Jesus, you,

You alone are my salvation, you alone redemption bring,

You alone my strength for day’s work, for you alone my song I sing.


You’re the song, the poem, the picture, every writer, artist craves;

Sweet deliverer, great Creator, such a One my soul has saved;

Saves and heals, speaks peace, delivers from all fears and sin’s dark stain,

Sweetly falling on my dryness, heavenly sweet refreshing rain.


Faintest thoughts, I find (when trusting) see me through the darkest place

While the grandest schemes (untrusting) nullify and cloud your grace.

You alone, my precious Jesus, you alone with mercy’s cup,

Walking with me in life’s battle, heal my wounds and raise me up.


In my weakness storms come filling with distress and searing pain,

Jesus, come, that storm now stilling, let your song be my refrain:

Sweetest music, tenderest message, from my heart to heaven’s ear,

Unto you, my King, ascribing every glory bright and clear.


Psalm 42:8

The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the  daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
