I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.
Give me strength to stand for what is right
Boldness to speak my mind
Love that I may share
Patience to even care
Fill my heart with You Lord
Expose me to Your truth
Help me find my way through the lies
To see clearly through Your eyes
Cleanse my mind of bitterness
Release me from my pride
Cover me with never-ending grace
Lead me to victory in this war-torn race
Set my feet upon Your firm foundation
Settle my heart and soul with Your love
Provide a shelter from the miry storms
Keep me safe from deception and harm
Cover my soul with your grace
That I may share your truth with others
Sharing Your love that abounds
Bringing peace that surrounds
