God is my Defender and Protector

     

Like a tree planted by the river, so is the man whose heart is stayed on Thee, Oh Lord.
Like an oasis in the middle of a dry desert and a safe harbor in time of storm so is Your Precious Presence to me, Oh Lord.
In Thee, I can safely trust, Oh God.
You are my Defender and Protector.
You are always with me through the thick and the thin, and in Thee, I can safely rely.
Who is like unto Thee, Oh Lord and who can be compared to Your Faithfulness?
You are always my Friend in the time of need and my Comforter in the time of grief.
You watch over me like a good shepherd who watches over his sheep and causes them to lie down safely in green pastures.
Amen.
