Psalm 27

   The Lord is my light
He is my salvation and strength.
   So whom shall I fear?
The wicked rise up to devour
   They stumble and fall
Tho an army encamp against me
   My heart will not fear
Tho against me a war may rage
   My confidence holds.

There’s just one thing I desire from the Lord
   And that one thing I will seek
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
   His face to see every day
I long to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
   To meditate on Him
There in the safety of His tabernacle
   He hides me from my foes
On a rock high above all my enemies
   He sets my feet secure
With shouts of joy and songs of praise
   I come before Him now.

Hear me, O Lord, when I cry with my voice
   Have mercy and answer me
You said to me, “Just seek My face”
   My heart says, “Your face I’ll seek!”
Please do not hide Your face from me
   Do not turn Your servant away
You’ve always been my help and strength
   So do not forsake me today
You are the God of my salvation
   Tho father and mother forsake
You always will take care of me
   Upon You I will wait.

Teach me Your way, O Lord, I pray
   And lead me in paths that are straight
Do not deliver me to my foes
   Who breathe out their lies and hate
Unless I believed, I would have despaired
   Your goodness I will see
Take courage, my heart, and wait on Him
   In the land of the living you’ll be
So do not despair but wait on the Lord
   Your faith He will reward
When all around your soul gives way
   Just wait, I say, on the Lord!
