    Default portion

    "He will my shield and portion be."
    This is a line from Amazing Grace.
    Does that mean the Lord is part of
    myself (my portion)? Isn't the Lord
    everything to me, not just a part?
    Maybe my understanding is incorrect.
    What does this 'my portion' mean?
    Thank you.

    Some dictionaries have a third definition of fate or destiny which might be how they're using it here.
