Fortitude

Oh, enemy
Who’s fighting me
Whoever you might be
Know now that all your schemes shall fail
You’ll never conquer me

My Savior’s near
And I won’t fear
No matter what I see
Although you try to chain me down
My Savior’s set me free

In any night
In any fight
‘Fore any foe or dart
You have no power over me
My King shall guard my heart

And though you say
There is no way
That I shall e’er succeed
My God works wondrous miracles
He’ll give me all I need

My hope is real
And you can’t steal
My peace, my hopeful spark
They’re blessings straight from God; how bright
They are when days are dark

Although you fight
To quench my light
My light shall yet remain
My joy and light are from my King
Eternal is His reign

For all your schemes
To slay my dreams
Shall make my faith more strong
They make me love my Savior more
Add power to my song

And if you try
To make me die
“My King arose!” I’ll sing
“Oh grave, where is your victory?
Oh death, where is your sting?”

And if in life
There must be strife
There must be grief and pain
The One in Whom I have believed
Will turn it for my gain

And I will fight
For what is right
I’ll pay whatever price
The chance to love and serve my King
Is worth the sacrifice

I am a eighteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!
