I Will Sing of Your Strength



But I will sing of your strength, 
in the morning I will sing of your love; 
for you are my fortress, 
my refuge in times of trouble .Ps. 59:16



I will sing of your strength in the morning
Oh Lord, I will sing of your faithful love
See how Your mercy rolls back the dark awning
Of midnight in shades flung from heaven above

I will sing of your strength in the noonday
While toil and temptation trouble and test
Surely your goodness and mercy will succor
Until the eventide bids us to its rest

I will sing of Your strength in the evening
When shadows fold over life’s weary way
You are my fortress, my refuge in trouble
God of the golden and God of the gray

Lord, I will sing of Your strength at midnight
Lest in the silence of darkness and space
Fear should persuade be to doubt in the kindness
Of Your everlasting goodness and grace
