(Verse 1)
The evening now in sight
I earnestly contend
To just stay grounded
With the absence of the light
The enemy moves in
And I am surrounded
With a weary heart
The battle goes on
Lord I will rest in the Words
That You spoke to me

(Chorus)
You are my Life
You are my Strength
My Faithful Defense and my Cover
My Shield and Shelter
Savior and Shepherd
You're my Life and my Strength
Jesus You Are

(Verse 2)
The warfare rages on
The toll it takes is that
My heart is tender
My spirit yet is strong
But as usual my flesh
Wants to surrender
Though it's hard to wait
On Your Word I'll depend
And believe with my heart
Until the end

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
In my distress
I called on You
And from Your throne
You heard me and saved me

(Vamp)
You are, You are, You are
You are, You are, You are
Oh, You are
Jesus You are
My Shield and Shelter
Savior and Shepherd
You're my life
Jesus You are

(Repeat Vamp)

You are my Life
You are my Strength
You are my Life
You are my Strength
(Out)
