The Lord is my banner

Representative Text

1 The Lord is my banner and the Lord is my King;
We’ll shout in his presence and his praises we’ll sing;
My Rock of Salvation, he is mighty to save
From sin and temptation and from death and the grave.

Then we’ll sing of his mercy and we’ll trust in his word,
And shout hallelujah to the praise of the Lord.

2 The Lord is my Saviour, my Redeemer from sin,
The light of his presence makes me joyful within;
The sunlight of glory has illumined my soul,
And the gift of his Spirit makes me perfectly whole. [Refrain]

3 The Lord is my refuge when temptations arise,
When clouds of thick darkness overshadow the skies;
When tempests are blowing and the dark billows roll;
I’m hiding in Jesus, and have peace in my soul. [Refrain]

4 From the Rock that was smitten, “that is higher than I,”
Come streams of salvation from the throne in the sky;
We’ll honor the Saviour for his infinite love,
And work till he calls us to his praises above. [Refrain]
