I was known as a quiet man;
Made my dwelling in tents;
Second of sons, known as the one,
Struggling without relent.

Blessing gained by supplanting ways,
Spurred the fury of Edom’s
Anger to slay; I fled away;
Yet dreams awaited from God.

The God whom my fathers walked with,
The Angel who has redeemed me,
The One who sustained me when
All I could do was pray;
Lord You’re the One I walk with,
You’re the One Who redeemed me,
You are the God Who shepherded me
All my life to this day.

Exiled, sojourning with no home;
Stone for my head to rest;
A vision I saw, a ladder so tall,
Through which Earth would be blessed.

Years I labored for one I loved,
Only to be deceived;
Unrighteousness led me in distress;
God of Bethel to see.

The God whom my fathers walked with,
The Angel who has redeemed me,
The One who sustained me when
All I could do was pray;
Lord You’re the One I walk with,
You’re the One Who redeemed me,
You are the God Who shepherded me,
All my life to this day.

How I prayed for deliverance
From him who would pursue.
I, in that place, saw God face to face;
There my strength was subdued.

Through the loss of the ones I loved,
Emptied now I confess,
Few were my days, evil my ways;
Now with fullness I bless.

The God whom my fathers walked with,
The Angel who has redeemed me,
The One who sustained me when
All I could do was pray.
Lord You’re the One I walk with,
You’re the One Who redeemed me,
You are the God Who shepherded me
All my life to this day.
