How the mind can wander
How the heart can stray
Suddenly you're on the edge of darkness
How it makes me ponder
How I'm led away
Down a path that leaves me worn and tarnished

Battling with the will within
I have known all along
That I should lean on You
'Cause I'm never strong enough
To fight it on my own

[CHORUS:]
Shelter me
The ways of the world are at my feet
Shelter me
From the desires that deceive
You are the fortress I need
Shelter me

How the mind can wonder
How the heart can change
When you set your sights on holiness
And though at times you falter
It's the only way
You can find a place of peace to rest

[CHORUS]

You will never leave me stranded
Fending for myself
When the enemy advances
You are there to help
Standing in the gap for me
Whenever I grow weak
You are my deliverer
The refuge that I seek

I should lean on You
'Cause I'm never strong enough
To fight it on my own

How the mind can wander
How the heart can stray
Suddenly you're on the edge of darkness
How it makes me ponder
How I'm led away
Down a path that leaves me worn and tarnished

Battling with the will within
I have known all along
That I should lean on You
'Cause I'm never strong enough
To fight it on my own

[CHORUS]
