Be with Me, Lord

Ken Canedo’s tuneful setting of Psalm 91, “Be with Me, Lord,” became a favorite for young people who in today’s world experience challenges their parents never faced. The song helps them realize that even when they are in trouble, God is still with them.

Be with me, Lord, when I am in trouble.
When I am in trouble, be with me, Lord.

If you seek a shelter,
then come to the Lord, our God.
Say to the Lord, “My refuge,
I place my trust in you.”

Your feet shall not stumble;
the angels will lift you high.
You shall defy the viper
and those who cause you harm.
