Who can stand before his fierce anger? (Nahum 1:6; NLT).

1. Lord,
You let me stand before you,
Though I’m flawed
And full of sin.

2. Lord,
You let me lean upon you,
For I’m damaged
Deep within.

3. Lord,
You let me walk beside you,
Though I fail
to do your will.

4. Lord,
In spite of all my faults,
You live in me,
And love me still.
