Perfect Peace

You will keep in perfect peace the one whose mind is steadfast
BECAUSE he trusts in You, O LORD!
-Isa 26:3


Encompassed (A song)

Before me, Behind me
Inside me, Beside me
Encompassed round about me
His love
His love surrounds me
As I say

I trust You Lord
I trust in You
With all my heart
I trust in You.

I love You Lord
I love You Lord
With all my heart
I love You Lord.

I trust in You
I love You Lord.

Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but the LORD’s unfailing love surrounds(compasses about) the one who trusts in Him. -Ps 32:10

“Because he loves Me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him; I will set him securely on high, for he acknowledges My name. -Ps 91:14

Held in perfect peace
Surrounded, encompassed, enfolded
In the Lord’s unfailing love
Because of
Trust in the Lord.

Set securley “on high”
Because of
Loyal devotion and love of the Lord.

    Ps 27:4-5
    One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.
