O Lord, how many enemies

O Lord, how many enemies
arise and threaten life and limb!
How many talk of me and say,
‘His God will not deliver him!’

2. But you surround me like a shield,
my glory, raising up my head;
you answer from your holy hill
whenever, Lord, with you I plead.

3. I take my sleep and wake again
sustained by you and fortified;
I will not fear ten thousand men
assailing me from every side.

4. Arise, O Lord! Deliver me
and overturn their evil ways;
deliverance, Lord, is yours alone:
O bless your people all their days!
