The word of God comforts me, It is my daily meal. When I walk down the valley, It tells me not to fear; For my God is with me. When I am up on the mountain, It says I should rejoice; For my God does great wonders. When my friends turn to foes, It reminds me of my Father's love; That heals my broken heart. When enemies rise against me, It assures me of victory in Christ; The battle he has fought and won. When storms arise and rage, It teaches me the way out, And strengthens me not to faint. As I journey to receive my crown, In God's word, I delight in every day, Till I reign with Him forever. It tells me to hold onto the fort, For Christ comes soon.
