I Stand in the Gap

On my knees before You, I come to You each day

For the lost souls of my family, to You I humbly pray

Just as David faced his enemy
and fought to bring them home

Not a woman or a child was lost and he recovered all

Iím believiní ... Iím believiní on Your miracles

And Iím trustiní ... Iím trustiní in Your word

And so Iím standing ... Iím standing on Your promises

Empowered by the Spirit of the Lord

And now Iím Knowiní that I can overtake the enemy

Cause Iím shielded ... yes, Iím shielded by the blood

And so Iím fightiní ... Iím fightiní for the victory

I canít be shaken, I canít be overcome!

Chorus

Iíll stand in the gap, and Iíll fight Ďtil all is won

For every brother, every sister, every daughter, every son.

My mind is on the Master, our great and awesome God

Yes, Iíll stand in the gap, and Iíll fight to bring them home.

Yes Iím believiní ... Lord, Iím believiní on Your miracles

And Iím trustiní ... yes, Iím trustiní in Your word

And so Iím standing, yes, Iím standing on Your promises

Empowered by the Spirit of the Lord Ö And,

Repeat chorus Ö

To bring them home Ö

Bridge

For I know who I am Ö and I know what I believe!

Deeply seeded in Your word, oh God, thatís working miracles in me!

Thatís why Iím Ö knowiní that I can overtake the enemy

Cause Iím shielded, Ö yes, Iím shielded by the blood

And so Iím fightiní Ö yes, Iím fightin for the victory

I canít be shaken, I canít be overcome! Ö Yes,

Repeat chorus ...

Cause Iím believiní, and Iím trustiní

Thatís why Iím standiní, and Iím knowiní

That Iím shielded, that's why Iím fightiní

Cause Iím believiní, and Iím trustiní

Yes Iím standiní, and Iím knowiní Ö Amen
