Lord my heart is failing me
And all my flesh is wasting away
As I look to the threats of the oppressor
And gaze upon their schemes of murder
They plan evil day and night
They seek to find faults in my life
They stretch their ropes wide to trip me
And chains of guilt to hold me back
God would You not intervene
Would You not heal?
Are You not the defender of the weak
And Father of the meek?
Doesn’t Your word say,
You’re “the King of glory in their midst
And a wall of fire all around”?
Hear Oh God
Hear the cry of my heart
Never let go, lest I die of my fright
You are my ONLY hope, You are my might
A just God, who is leading my fight
Heal me oh God
Heal me by Your strips
That You took for me and many
On Calvary’s cross
Bind my aching heart and troubled soul
Let Your peace that surpasses all understanding
Guard my heart and soul
Until You come and we hear victory’s shout
Let our hearts stay strong in You our good God!
