So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ~Isaiah 41:10
My Lord, you have promised to protect
Those who submit to your will, who
Follow your precepts, keep your commandments
Praying, praying, praying, not ceasing
Even though we sense human frailties
Will deter us from reaching goals
You have already set for us, perfection
For which we can only hope to achieve
Knowing we can't. Not without your help.
Calm our fears through your persistent presence
Relieve our dread and dismay in this world
By your Word, your strength, witnessed by faith
Uphold us in your righteous right hand.
