MY CHAMPION

TO YOU LORD WHO CALLED ALL INTO EXISTENCE
I WILL FLY AWAY AND FIND MY REST
I WILL HURRY TO MY REFUGE, MY PLACE OF SHELTER
I WILL ENJOY YOUR SWEET COMPANY MORNING TO NIGHT

LET MY HEART BE STEADY
LET MY MIND BE STRONG
LET ME NEVER WAVER
FROM YOUR UNFAILING LOVE

THERE IS REST IN THE LORD ALONE
AND IN HIM I WILL NOT BE SHAKEN
MY SOUL WILL CLING TO HIM WHO GIVES ME LIFE
THE LORD LIFTS ME UP AND CARRIES ME INTO THE HEAVENS

CHORUS

LET MY SOUL CRY OUT TO YOU, THE LIVING GOD
AND WHEN THIS MORTAL FLESH FAILS, YOU WILL COMFORT ME
YOU POUR OUT YOUR STRENGTH AS OIL TO HEAL
YOU ARE MY CHAMPION WHO WILL KEEP ME FOREVER AND EVER

CHORUS 2X

Jesus is our bridegroom (Ps 19:5), our champion who freed us from the slavery of the fear of death (Heb 2:14,15). Worship is the proper response from a grateful heart for there is no greater gift a sinner can receive than the forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
