Treasure Island

By Grace


You hid me from the eyes of the devil,
Protected me from all bad and evil,
Untied me from the bounds of the earth,
Its all by grace.

In the spiritual battle you became my shield,
Your word forever lives in me,
In the darkness of the earth
You became my light,
The light that brought life into me.

It is by grace and mercy that you chosen me,
You called out my name and saturated me,
You made me a new human being,
You protected me from the unseen,
You gave me hope and a life to live.

'Though i may walk in the shadow of death,
I shall not fear,
'Cause by Your grace you shelter me'

You protect me in the shadow of your wings,
In my life you do miraculous things,
Praises to the throne,
'Cause my sins are now far thrown.
By Grace

Lo, now four other act upon the stage,
Childhood and Youth, the Many and Old age:
The first son unto phlegm, grandchild to water,
Unstable, supple, cold and moist's his nature
