When the darkness creeps toward me I won’t fear,
As evil, like a mist, envelops me, I won’t fret.
For the Lord is with me in the darkness,
My King is the light that destroys the mist.
When my heart is overwhelmed, I won’t worry,
I won’t be anxious when my soul is burdened.
I will cry to God and He takes my burden,
The force is taken away when I pray to my King.
The Lord is my strength in my weakness,
When I am feeble, He gives me power.
I will hold fast to the mighty hand of God,
My eyes will behold the righteousness of the Almighty.
For in Him there is no fear,
I become bold when I am with my God.
