The Lord is my banner

Full Text

1 The Lord is my banner and the Lord is my King;
We’ll shout in his presence and his praises we’ll sing;
My Rock of Salvation, he is mighty to save
From sin and temptation and from death and the grave.

Refrain:
Then we’ll sing of his mercy and we’ll trust in his word,
And shout hallelujah to the praise of the Lord.

2 The Lord is my Saviour, my Redeemer from sin,
The light of his presence makes me joyful within;
The sunlight of glory has illumined my soul,
And the gift of his Spirit makes me perfectly whole. [Refrain]

3 The Lord is my refuge when temptations arise,
When clouds of thick darkness overshadow the skies;
When tempests are blowing and the dark billows roll;
I’m hiding in Jesus, and have peace in my soul. [Refrain]

4 From the Rock that was smitten, “that is higher than I,”
Come streams of salvation from the throne in the sky;
We’ll honor the Saviour for his infinite love,
And work till he calls us to his praises above. [Refrain]
