A Pauper Served By The King

It defies all understanding Lord,why you gave your life for me,
The ruler chose a fate that chills, blood spilt at Calvary.
So when my heart gets so restless, life's a tossing, turning sea.
I walk back to that lonely hill, on my knees find rest in Thee.
Chorus: Oh Jehovah, Master, Friend of Mine
My soul in praise I sing..........
It defies all understanding, Lord
A pauper served......by The KING
Should I wander from the Pathway Lord, You lead, I don't get lost,
By your blood and your promises, find my way back to the Cross.
I shall not fear the battle, for you're always by my side,
My prayer will be your glory, if Thou shall be my guide
Please let me make this, just one promise, To serve Thee til' the end,
Be forever near me Lord, my Master, my best friend.
Bridge: "I shall not fear the battle,"
"For you're always by my side"
"Won't wander from The Pathway"
"If Thou shalt be my guide"
"I shall not fear the battle"
"For the battle's already won"
"That day that death was conquered"
"The day you gave your Son"
Close: Oh Jehovah, Master,....Friend of Mine,
My soul in praise I sing.
Ten thousand hosts of angels wait,
Just sitting on their wings.
Guess I'll really never understand,
But my soul in praise still sings,
It defies all understanding Lord,
This pauper served by......THE KING
