"The LORD went before them... He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people" (Exodus 13:21,22). "Lead me, O LORD... make Thy way straight before my face" (Psalm 5:8). "Every word of God is pure: He is a Shield unto them that put their trust in Him" (Proverbs 30:5). "Ye heard the Word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation... that ye may know what is the hope of His calling" (Ephesians 1:13,18).
The Lord led with shade and with light:
The pillar of cloud every day,
The pillar of fire each night;
He took not these pillars away.
The Lord leads us on by His grace
With faithfulness that is assured
In all of the things that we face,
Directing our way by His Word.
The people of God have a calling
As each of us follow our Lord.
He's able to keep us from falling;
Our diligence He will reward.
Your words, Lord, by which we are led,
Are pillars directing our path,
By which we are called and have fled
To You as our Shield from wrath.
