Through Jesus's stripes we are healed, for he is our sword and our shield.

My Sword and My Shield

By: Tracey Criswell Wilson

I am so glad that Easter's here,
I thank God and silently cheer.

Because He sent His Son for me,
thanks be to Jesus I am free.

It's by his stripes that I am healed,
By my beliefs, my fate He sealed.

Up to the Heavens He did rise,
"Stay with us, Jesus" were the cries.

Now, with His love I can go on
and make it through the night 'til dawn.

I raise my voice so high in song,
thanks to you Lord, I am kept strong.

I'm truly blessed by you my Lord
for being both my shield and sword.
