The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation
271The Lord is my hlight and my isalvation;
jwhom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold1 of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
2When evildoers assail me
to keat up my flesh,
my adversaries and foes,
it is they who stumble and fall.
3lThough an army encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me,
yet2 I will be confident.
4mOne thing have I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek after:
that I may ndwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon othe beauty of the Lord
and to inquire3 in his temple.
5For he will phide me in his shelter
in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will qlift me high upon a rock.
6And now my rhead shall be lifted up
above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
sacrifices with shouts of sjoy;
tI will sing and make melody to the Lord.
7uHear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
be gracious to me and answer me!
8You have said, v“Seek4 my face.”
My heart says to you,
“Your face, Lord, do I seek.”5
9 wHide not your face from me.
Turn not your servant away in anger,
O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off; forsake me not,
xO God of my salvation!
10For ymy father and my mother have forsaken me,
but the Lord will ztake me in.
11aTeach me your way, O Lord,
and lead me on ba level path
because of my enemies.
12cGive me not up to the will of my adversaries;
for dfalse witnesses have risen against me,
and they ebreathe out violence.
13I believe6 that I shall look upon fthe goodness of the Lord
in gthe land of the living!
14hWait for the Lord;
ibe strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the Lord!
