God our Guard and Guide

"We have thought of Thy lovingkindness, O God… This God is our God forever and ever: He will be our Guide even unto death" (Psalm 48:9,14).  "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God… What shall we then say to these things?  If God be for us, who can be against us?... Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect?  It is God that justifieth.  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again… who also maketh intercession for us" (Romans 8:14,31-34). 

Come, let us think about the love
That caused our God to be our Savior.
Descending from His throne above,
He died to grant His saving favor. 

We rightly think about the past
To praise the Savior we adore,
Yet Christ shall come again at last;
He is alive forevermore!  

What shall we say then to these things
As by His Spirit we are led?
We're guarded now beneath the wings
Of Christ now risen from the dead.

We thank You, God, our Guard and Guide,
Though foes may stand up with aggression,
By You we yet are justified,
And for us You make intercession.
