Story behind the song
Some of the greatest worship songs were written when the author was in the midst of a great struggle in his or her lives. A few years ago my wife had some health issues that seemed overwhelming at the time, and in the midst of all those worries, God gave me this song to remind me who we trust in.
VS:1 LORD YOU ARE A STRONG TOWER, AND A REFUGE UNTO ME. YOU HAVE GIVEN ME POWER, TO OVERCOME MY ENEMIES.
CHORUS: SOME MAY TRUST IN CHARIOTS, AND SOME IN HORSES, BUT I WILL TRUST IN YOU O'LORD AS LONG AS I WILL LIVE, I WILL TRUST YOU IN THE DARKEST NIGHT, TRUST YOU THRU THE DAY, I WILL TRUST YOU
LORD TO LIGHT MY PATH, ALL ALONG THE WAY. I WILL TRUST YOU LORD.
VS:2 LORD YOU'VE GIVEN ME YOUR HOLY ARMOUR, AND YOUR WORD IT IS A TWO EDGED SWORD, MAY I FIGHT JUST LIKE A WARRIOR, AGAINST THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD.
BRIDGE: I WILL TRUST YOU LORD. I WILL TRUST YOU LORD, WALK WITH ME, TALK WITH ME, TEACH ME TO ALWAYS KNOW YOUR WILL. SHOWER ME, EMPOWER ME, WITH YOUR STRENGTH, THAT THE GATES OF HELL WILL NOT PREVAIL. SOME MAY TRUST IN CHARIOTS, AND SOME IN HORSES, BUT I WILL TRUST IN YOU O'LORD AS LONG AS I WILL LIVE.
TAG: I WILL TRUST YOU LORD, I WILL TRUST YOU LORD.
