The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

My Helper – by Buddy Maynard
He helps the sick with healing, the sinner with forgiveness, the sad with happiness. He helps the sorrowful with comfort, the fatherless with a family, the weak or failing with strength, and the simple with wisdom. He helps the servant with reward, the scarce with food, the unsanctified with holiness. He helps the lonely with friendship, the lost with guidance, the longing with truth. He helps the tempted with victory, the tried with patience, and the troubled with a refuge. He helps the Hell-bound sinner with conviction, the repentant with grace, and the confessor with mercy. He helps the faithful press on, the persecuted to be blessed, the slave to wear a crown, and he will help the tired soldier graduate to his home in heaven, because “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me.”
