God as My Defense

A sovereign protector I have

   Unseen, yet for ever at hand

Unchangably faithful to me

   Almighty to rule and command.

He smiles, and my comforts abound;

   His grace as the dew shall decend.

And walls of salvation surround

   The soul He delights to defend.

– August Toplady

as quoted by J.I. Packer, Knowing God, copyright 1973, page 263
