In 1966, the gospel group, The Soul Stirrers led by Sam Cooke recorded, “Jesus be a fence all around me everyday.” An inspiring song, it speaks of God’s protection. With God’s protection, you are surrounded and engulfed with his love, mercy, and grace.
The words are very powerful!
“Jesus be a fence all around me everyday.
Jesus, I want you to protect me as I travel along the way.
I know you can.
I know you will.
Fight my battle.
If I just keep still.
Lord be a fence all around me everyday.
This is my prayer Lord that I pray each and everyday.
That you would guide my footsteps lest I stumble and stray.
Lord I need you to direct me all along the way.
Oh Lord be a fence all around me every day.”
This is one of those old school songs. My pastor always says that everybody needs their own spiritual song. The words will “keep” you. “Jesus be a fence all around me everyday ” is one of mine! I want, need, and thank The Lord for his unchanging hand and protection. I thank you Lord for keeping me inside the walls of your protection and keeping “stuff” that I don’t need out! “Jesus be a fence all around me everyday” is more than a song; it is Jesus at work in my life! Thank you Lord!
Happy Sunday. God bless!
