Lover and Keeper of Our Soul
I never felt completely safe as a child; my days were dark, and my future bleak. I did not know how to handle the hard circumstances of my life. Anger, hurt, and bitterness, and low self-esteem filled my heart and ruined the flavor of my life. Jesus changed everything. He is now my Lord, Savior, and the Keeper of my soul. There is light and hope shining on my path ahead and He also dwells deep within.
Father, protect us from life’s storms I pray.
Our heart and our future keep safe today.
In the winds and rains of life,
There are many who do not want to do right.
Keep us safe and give us wisdom as we walk the land;
We reach out Lord for Your helping hand.
When it is dark, You are the light within,
When it is unsafe to walk; we trust You carry us then.
When words like stones are thrown our way,
Instead we will listen to the Word, and its precepts obey.
When circumstances laugh, help us in faith to laugh too.
Knowing You are able to the best thing do.
You walked on the water, and through walls as a door.
Nothing is impossible for the Lord.
You conquer sin, and death bows-low in defeat.
We have full confidence our heart You keep.
Keeper of our soul, soul-lover till the end;
You are Lord, bridegroom, Savior and our best friend.
The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:
he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in
from this time forth, and even for evermore.
