God Around You
May He be beside you as a friend,
and thus his strength and his wisdom lend.
May he be behind you a strong rear guard,
should Pharoah’s armies pursue you hard;
or should you be tempted to turn back,
keep you from such a foolish act.
May he be beneath you, if you should fall,
and remind you he is the Lord of all.
May he go before you to lead the way,
may his love surround you both night and day.
