a shield against all evil come,
the surrender of God’s will be done
that fears not hinder what He has won.
the anchor for this troubled soul,
the reason that my strength be whole
as wondrous plans for me unfold.
a wellspring for this longing heart,
the binds that keep me from falling apart
as His great affections in me impart.
All these I claimed when it came to be
that the Giver of Life breathed into me.
Faith, Hope, Love
