The Lord is There

One of the names of the Lord our God,

Which speaks of His love and His care,

Is called in the Hebrew — “Jehovah-Shammah”

And it means that “The Lord is there.”

In your hours of sorrow and your times of grief,

When your soul seems so filled with despair,

Reflect on the words of “Jehovah-Shammah”

And know in your heart — “He is there.”

When you’re flat on your back or you’re suffering pain

And you’re feeling that life is not fair,

Start counting your blessings from “Jehovah-Shammah”;

Just think on His love — “He is there.”

When your plans go awry or your dreams fall apart,

When your burdens are heavy to bear,

Lean hard on the promise of “Jehovah-Shammah”;

You are never alone — “He is there.”

When the devil’s temptations press hard on your soul,

And he deviously seeks to ensnare,

Run quickly to Jesus, your “Jehovah-Shammah”;

Then your battle is won — “He is there.”

When your heart overflows with thanksgiving and praise,

And you pour out your love in your prayer,

There’s rejoicing in heaven by “Jehovah-Shammah”;

For He hears and we know — “He is there.”
