Iíll go in the strength of the Lord|
Theme song of "Good news in the Morning"
Iíll go in the strength of the Lord,
In paths he has marked for my feet;
I'll follow the light of his word,
Nor shrink from the dangers I meet.
His presence my steps shall attend,
His fullness my wants shall supply;
On him, till my journey shall end,
My unwavering faith shall rely.
Iíll go, (I'll go,) I'll go in the strength,
I'll go in the strength of the Lord,
I'll go, (I'll go,) I'll go in the strength,
I'll go in the strength of the Lord.
2. I'll go in the strength of the Lord
To work which he appoints me to do;
In joy which his smile doth afford,
My soul shall her vigour renew.
His wisdom shall guard me from harm,
His power my sufficiency prove;
I'll trust his omnipotent arm,
And prove his unchangeable love.
3. I'll go in the strength of the Lord
To conflicts which faith will require,
His grace as my shield and reward,
My courage and zeal shall inspire.
Since he gives the word of command,
To meet and encounter the foe,
With his sword of truth in my hand,
To suffer and triumph I'll go.
William James Pearson (1832-92)
From: 734 Thou shepherd of Israel, 487; In the strength of
the Lord, 485. 18.104.22.168. D.Amph
