The Lord, He is our sun and shield- Hymn

The Lord, He is our sun and shield,

Our buckler and our guard,

And hence we stand and will not yield,

Though enemies press hard.

 

Like as a shield the blow keeps off

The enemy lays on,

So He prevents all hurt to us,

And saves us every one.

 

Let foes strike at us as they please,

Upon the head or heart;

This precious shield which we do use

Secures us every part.

 

From sin, from Satan and the world

No art we need to fear,

Since Thou art such a shield to us,

Our God and Savior dear!

 

Our shield and our great reward,

To Thee all praise be given;

Who with Thy saving help afford

Until we come to Heaven.
