 Surrounded by Protection
Trusting in You, I am forever unshaken
I am secure and I will never be forsaken
Like Jerusalem surrounded by mountains
I am always surrounded by Your protection

The wicked will not rule over those doing right
If the wicked did, then it would come into light
That people doing right might use their power
As an excuse to practice evil at any given hour

Lord, be good to the good with honest hearts
But those who do evil, You will say to depart
For they have turned against You in every way
Lord, let there be peace in Israel, hasten that day

Based on Psalm 125

Another symbol of protection is that
the Lord is a "wall of fire" around us
(see especially verse 5 below)

Zechariah 2:3-5 (NIV)
Then the angel who was speaking to me left, and
another angel came to meet him 4 and said to him:
"Run, tell that young man,
'Jerusalem will be a city without walls
because of the great number of men and
livestock in it. 5 And I myself will be
a wall of fire around it,' declares the LORD,
'and I will be its glory within.'
