Tuesday With Karen

by Karen Icenhour

I Love The Lord Because

I love the Lord because He’s my Fortress of strength,

My Present Help & Shelter when days are at length;

He loadeth me with benefits everyday anew,

There’s nothing His mercy can’t carry me through.

I love the Lord because He’s my Redeemer & Shield,

The Hiding Place of my heart who says “Peace, be still;”

His word is a Lamp to my feet, Light to the path I trod,

What an honor to be led by the hand of God!

I love the Lord because He hears my voice when I pray,

From the miry clay, set my feet upon a Rock to stay;

What time I am afraid, I’ll seek the Lord’s face,

Knowing at all times, He gives sweet loving grace!

I love the Lord for being the Pavilion where I may hide,

He enlarges the steps of my path, so my feet won’t slide;

Thank God, He keeps me in the shadow of His wings,

Just knowing His love gives me great reason to sing!
