The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord
And to inquire in His temple.
For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.
And now my head shall be lifted up
Above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices
Of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
When You said, “Seek My face,”
My heart said to You,
“Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take care of me.
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
(…from Psalm 27, NKJV)
