Thanks for those thoughts! Honestly, I wasn’t totally satisfied with the last line of stanza 2 but I wanted to hear thoughts on it before stressing out about finding a new one. I finally rewrote the whole stanza and I’m still trying to decide if it is any better. Here it is.

Lord Jesus Christ, be my heart’s shield.

While knowing You, I cannot fear.

Let life be wild in every field

Or peace prevail; my God is near.

Stanza 3 remains a work in progress; I’m glad for your suggestions there.
