Lord how are they increased that trouble me

Many are they that rise up against me

Many there be which say of my soul

There is no help for him in God

 

CHORUS

But thou O Lord art a shield for me

My glory, you lift my head

But thou O Lord art a shield for me

Youíre my glory the lifter up of my head

 

I cried unto the Lord with my voice

And he heard me out of his holy hill

I laid my down and I slept

I awaked for the Lord sustained me

 

CHORUS

But thou O Lord art a shield for me

My glory, you lift my head

But thou O Lord art a shield for me

Youíre my glory the lifter up of my head

 

I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people

That set themselves against me round about

(God has not given you the spirit of fear)

I will not be afraid of ten thousand of people

(But of power and a sound mind)

That set themselves against me round about oh

 

CHORUS

But thou O Lord art a shield for me (youíre my glory yeah)
