In the light of His countenance, I walk
in His might.
Lifted above the circumstances of life,
No longer weighed down by worldly
concerns, I give praise with voice.
With my heart set upon that which is
His, I treasure, so contrite.
In the midst of all that has been given,
the enemy comes to steal.
Setting traps and snares, he beguiles
and sways as thoughts swirl.
With worthless things, he entices and
distracts from that which is valued.
He comes to destroy and drag me down
into the pit of depression.
Falling deep into self-pity comes a
sense of being snared in transgression.
In desperation I cry out for help to be
rescued but no one seems to care.
They turn against me in my misery as I
sink deeper into despair.
Overwhelmed by the snares set secretly,
I cry out for the Lord to rescue me.
Trapped in the web of despondency, He is
there to deliver and set free.
He brings my soul out of this prison and
bondage that I may yet praise Him.
With a Word fitly spoken, He rescues
with words of encouragement.
Though the enemy may set his traps I
will trust in God and His precepts.
Watching over my path, He knows the ways
that must be kept.
The testimonies of those who have gone
before me are my heritage.
With my countenance now lifted, my heart
rejoices in truth now mastered.
Having inclined my heart to walk
according to His Word forever, I
To the very end I will follow hard after
Him who faithfully rescues from regret.
He is the one who brought my soul out of
prison that I might praise His name.
He will continually bless the way I
take, guiding me around the traps set.
With the joyful sound coming forth from
His Spirit, my countenance delights.
