The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation
A Psalm of David.
1The Lordis my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes,
came upon me to eat up my flesh,
they stumbled and fell.
3Though a host should encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear:
though war should rise against me,
in this will I be confident.
4One thing have I desired of the Lord,
that will I seek after;
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.
5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me;
he shall set me up upon a rock.
6And now shall mine head be lifted up
above mine enemies round about me:
therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy;
I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
