I Shall Not Be Moved

Ben Zornes

Verse 1
You lifted me out of the pit, and saved me from my plight
And with Your glorious power you seat me with Christ on high
Now the sun can not harm me by day, nor the moon by night
You train my hands for war, and fill me with Your might
The gates of hell cannot prevail
And neither You nor Your promise can fail

Because You are my rock and my salvation
You are the only sure foundation
I shall not be moved, I will not fear
For You are near, and I shall not be moved

Verse 2
Though foes of all kind seek to steal, kill, hate and destroy
I will not fear their contempt for You stay me with Your joy
You gird me with strength and with courage which none can alloy
O Jesus You are unto me a shield against Satan’s ploys
I know that hell will not prevail and neither You nor Your promise can fail

I will love Thee oh Lord my strength
My song in the night, my fortress, my light
My Lord forever lives and is rock beneath my feet
And let God alone be evermore exalted

I shall not be, I shall not be moved
Stayed upon Jehovah, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree, that’s planted by the water
I shall not be moved
