God's got your back, when foes assail,
but your great Helper will not fail.
Your enemies will creep away;
they may come back another day.
God is my shield, I will be strong,
ever my shelter and my song.
Why should I shake with dread and fear?
I know my Savior's always near.
Wait for your God, who lifts your heart;
trust in the One who takes your part.
Be strong and walk the holy way;
God listens gladly when you pray.
God, hear our voice; we seek your face.
Show all your people help and grace.
Deliver us from sin and shame,
that we may ever praise your name.
