Keep My Life

In recent times as the voice of the pandemic roars nigh, we are witnessing sanctuaries become increasingly unsecure, the moth of inflation greedily erroding necessities and valuables in store houses, the onslaught of the wickedness of fear being perfected on its victims.

Truth be told, all known defenses are compromised. Question is: Where else can we find rest for our souls? Who will be there when all fails?

We have seen loved ones depart in their prime, with promises unkept. We are living with the reality of crumbling economies, dashing financial hopes against the rocks. Solace sought in the arms of allies, a crack in the wall.

Out of the ruins of despair, a voice emerges. It is the call to faith. To us who dwell in the secret place of the Most High, we are assured of safety.

Yet again the song of deliverance is heard in Zion. The dance of victory. The pomp of salvation. Our banner reads: Elohim Machase Lanu, Elohei Ma’uzzi

Keep My Life” was written with this in mind, that there is no refuge like our God. Amen

And we declare;

Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.

Psalms 25:20 NKJV

Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken.

Psalms 34:19‭-‬20 NKJV

You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in YAH, the Lord , is everlasting strength.

Isaiah 26:3‭-‬4 NKJV

Who keeps our soul among the living, And does not allow our feet to be moved

Psalms 66:9 NKJV

The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.

Psalms 41:2 NKJV

The Lord is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him.

Nahum 1:7 NKJV

For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy.

Psalms 61:3 NKJV

I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

John 17:14‭-‬15 NKJV

For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters They shall not come near him. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

Psalms 32:6‭-‬7 NKJV


Lyrics


“Keep My Life”
Tosin Koyi

Verse
When the enemy rages, coming to devour me
Your blood is all that I can run to

When the enemy rages, like a storm
Your name is the anchor that I hold on to

Cos’ Your blood is strong enough
To deliver my soul from death
In Your name I put my trust
I know You will calm the raging storm

Chorus
Keep my life safe
As I keep my mind stayed on You

Verse
Mountains high, valleys low
Days yet numbered as life unfolds

You have promised, You’d be here
So there’s no reason I need to fear

You are God alone and none compares to You
No power on earth is strong enough to take me from Your love

Chorus
Keep my life safe
As I keep my mind stayed on You

Bridge
Oh oh oh oh
(Oh oh oh)

You will keep me safe from evil
(Oh oh oh)

Even though I walk through the valley of shadow of death
(Oh oh oh)

In the day and the night You will keep me
(Oh oh oh)

Preserve my soul in Your love
(Oh oh oh)

You’re my strong tower in the day of trouble
(Oh oh oh)

I put my trust in You, yes I do
(Oh oh oh)

You will keep me in perfect peace if I keep my mind
(Stayed on You)

In You lies my strength and my security
(Stayed on You)

Whenever, wherever, I know that I’m safe

Cos’ I got your mind stayed on You [Repeat]
(Stayed on You)

Take My Hand

There are three things which are too wonderful for me,
Yes, four which I do not understand:
The way of an eagle in the air,
The way of a serpent on a rock,
The way of a ship in the midst of the sea,
And the way of a man with a virgin.

Proverbs 30:18 – 19

Let’s talk about love for 3 minutes and 28 seconds.

Roses and rings
A serenade by calm waters
A longing shared over a view of a bright moon-lit night

A tear of excitement
A gaze into the future filed with hope and promise
A plea on his knees and then an affirmation

Cheers of excitement
The gathering of witnesses
The journey of forever begins..

Before and beyond this beautiful moment hinges on the words “I do”. In thought, in word and in action forever starts with you and I, a day at a time.

“Take My Hand” rides on the soulful sounds of Tosin Koyi, offering a dynamic perspective on love; purpose, trust and growth.

Do enjoy this release.
