The Lord is my light and salvation. Whom shall I fear?
He is my protector and friend.
And is always near!
He’s the stronghold of my life... Whom shall I be afraid!
He is clothed with righteousness.
His majesty is displayed!
Though evil men advance, and my enemies attack me…
They will stumble and fall!
For the Lord is with me!
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear!
The Lord will fight for me,
and they shall disappear!
In the day of trouble, the Lord will keep me safe!
He will hide and put me on a solid resting place!
At his tabernacle, will I sacrifice shouts of joy!
Singing and making music to the Lord, I shall enjoy!
I am confident in the Lord’s goodness,
in the land of the living!
I will enter his gates with praise
and a heart of thanksgiving!
I shall wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart!
Being in his presence,
is a good place to start!
You, my Lord bring goodness
and life to my soul!
I shall sing of your love and mercy,
wherever I go!
