VERSE 1:
O LORD, my foes have risen up against me,
Proclaiming that there is no help in God.
But this I know: You are a Shield about me,
My Glory, and the Lifter of my head.
But this I know: You are a Shield about me,
My Glory, and the Lifter of my head.

VERSE 2:
I cry aloud to God who is Salvation.
I hear Him answer from His holy hill.
I sleep in peace, for God the LORD sustains me;
I will not fear, though thousands would assail.
I sleep in peace, for God the LORD sustains me;
I will not fear, though thousands would assail.

VERSE 3:
Arise, O LORD, my God Who does deliver;
Strike down my enemies as in the past,
For unto You, O LORD, belongs salvation.
May blessing on Your people ever rest.
For unto You, O LORD, belongs salvation.
May blessing on Your people ever rest.

VERSE 4:
The Son of Man, rejected and forsaken,
Suffered unjustly at the hands of men.
So let us arm ourselves with this same purpose—
Embrace His will, entrust our souls to Him.
So let us arm ourselves with this same purpose—
Embrace His will, entrust our souls to Him.
