Subdued by the Savior

"The LORD is my Defense; and my God is the Rock of my refuge" (Psalm 94:22).  "A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished" (Proverbs 22:3).  "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him" (Isaiah 59:19).  "We look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ:  who... is able even to subdue all things unto Himself" (Philippians 3:20,21). 

The Lord our God is our Defense,
Our Rock, our Refuge where we hide,
Who gives to us such confidence
Because for us the Savior died.

God's Word enables us to see
The coming wrath that is ahead.
The prudent one to Christ shall flee;
The fool just passes on instead. 

The enemy comes like a flood;
God's Spirit stands against his harm
To lift the standard of Christ's blood;
For the redeemed, there's no alarm! 

We praise You, Jesus Christ our Savior,
So glad to know that You subdued
Our sins to bless us with Your favor!
Receive our heartfelt gratitude.
