My Saviour Christ is with Me

I recently found Matt Searles’ when Spotify’s algorithm actually worked in my favour. Matt is active in ministry in the UK, currently Director of Training for the South Central Gospel Partnership. He has written wonderful songs of deep biblical truths in clear and accessible way to normal Christians of all backgrounds. One of his most recent albums includes new songs to old hymn tunes – this is one of my favourites, and you may recognise Lacy Condy’s lovely vocals from Sovereign Grace adorning the words to this hymn based on Pslam 27.

The Lord’s my light – I shall not fear
The Lord is my salvation
My tower of strength; my God is near
In every situation
Though enemies on every side
And armies rise against me
I have a stronghold for my life:
My saviour Christ is with me

One thing I ask, and I would seek
To gaze upon his beauty
To dwell with God and never leave
And see him in his glory
He hides me in his holy tent
When troubles rise around me
Here on this rock I stand secure:
My saviour Christ is with me

Give ear O Lord, and hear my cry
Pour out your grace and mercy
I seek your face with all my heart
Don’t turn your goodness from me
O God my help, forsake my not
When others turn against me
But you O Lord preserve my life
My saviour Christ is with me

Teach me your way O Lord my God
Make level paths before me
My enemies with lying tongues
Do violence against me
I’ll see the goodness of the Lord
Each day that I am living
Be strong my soul and wait for God
My saviour Christ is with me

The song can be heard on Spotify as well as on bandcamp here.
