Preserved People

"Make known His deeds among the people... He suffered no man to do them wrong" (Psalm 105:1,14).  "The LORD... is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.  He... preserveth the way of His saints" (Proverbs 2:6-8).  "I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it " (1 Thessalonians 5:23,24).  

The Lord has made His power known
Among His people by His deeds,
Preserving all who are His own,
Providing all their daily needs.

Though evil is around us still,
The Lord preserves us all day long. 
As we are led to do His will,
He shelters us from every wrong. 

Our God is faithful to preserve
Our spirit, soul, and body too,
Providing us the grace to serve
With strength He daily will renew.   

O Lord, we join the joyful ranks
Of people You preserve today
Who worship You, who give You thanks,
Who hear Your voice, and who obey.
