Lord Keep Me Close
By Tom D Blakely
O Lord You are my confidence
My shield of faith, my strong defence
And as I walk untrodden ways
I know your Spirit with me stays.
Attacked by Satan’s lying words
I must hold tightly to the Sword
The scriptures combat Satan’s lies
May nothing take me by surprise.
So often I have walked alone
Just in my strength and on my own
When something unexpected came
I failed You Lord and brought You shame.
Today seems just another day
With little need to trust and pray
And yet there is no harmless day
Lord keep me close, don’t let me stray.
‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.’
