Let the Lord be your bastion of hope

Let the Lord be your stay and your bastion of hope.

Walk with the Lord always and never leave His side.

Put your whole trust in the Lord and let Him hold your life and soul in the hollow of His hand; where He will keep it safe from the wiles of the Devil and man.

In Him we can safely trust and none other; for He alone can keep us from harm and protect us from all alarm.

Like defenseless sheep we are; ever in danger of being attacked by wolves and devoured and our lives laid waste.

The only safe place for us to be in the world's forest of peril that is filled with predators is right next to the Shepherd of our souls, Jesus Christ.
