the god i serve lyrics – spring of hope

verse 1:
the ropes of death ensnare and the trap of sin holds tight
but in a moment you are there – my captain in the fight
take now my hand in yours and help me to wield this sword
till every foe i fight falls down to rise no more

this is the god i serve; this is the truth i trust
we shall more than conquer by the power of great love
apart from him i am nothing, but by his grace i stand
strong to triumph while he’s holding tight my hand

verse 2:
oh, reach down from heaven and draw me to your light
please drive out all the darkness i cannot see to fight
arm me with new strength; be for me a shield
train me with a truth that wins the battlefield
