I'm Not Alone

While crying out for guidance,
holding that the flesh is weak, From within a gentle silence, comes the answers that I seek.

When my days are at their darkest and the nights produce no rest, in His spirit there's a stillness,
where He summons up my best.

Since temptations are unyielding
in their attempts to gain control,
His grace provides the shielding,
that protects my mortal soul.

Knowing I can not defeat them;
yet, with Him I'm not alone,
as He goes out to greet them,
soon my troubles will be gone.

I am shielded by His blessing,
with this armor that I wear;
and safe from life's transgressions,
by the powers found in prayer.

My cup is free from sorrow,
it's overflowing at the brim.
I can stand and face tomorrow,
having placed my faith in Him.
