I Am The Lord, Your God

Representative Text

1 "Fear not," your Maker now proclaims,
"I am the Lord, your God.
You’re mine; I’ve called you by your name.
I am the Lord, your God.
I’ll help you through the waters;
They’re not too deep for God.
The rivers won’t sweep o’er you;
I am the Lord, your God.

2 "I’ll walk with you through fiery ways;
I am the Lord, your God.
You won’t be burned or set ablaze;
I am the Lord, your God.
I’ve ransomed and redeemed you;
I am the holy God.
You’re precious and I love you;
I am the Lord, your God.

3 "Before Me no god e’er was formed;
I am the Lord, your God.
Nor after Me will any come;
I am the Lord, your God.
For I alone can save you;
I am Jehovah God.
This day you are my witness;
I am the Lord, your God."
