His love enfolds me, His arms embrace me
in every situation in life there can be.
Though great be the testing, through faith I have learned
it isn’t by something I’ve done right, or earned,
but the assurance that He walks alongside of me
and though storm clouds come, and rush at my door
and rage about, and floodwaters deep,
it is on Him I turn my eyes, and think upon the calming sea.
My spirit is hopeful, lifting me
for I am made stronger, humbled and meek,
and for all that I ask, and for all that I seek
my heavenly father gives to me.
I will lift up His holy precious name,
Jesus, Savior, Redeemer, King.
