Psalm 27: God, My Salvation and Light
God, my salvation and light
Holds me secure in His hand,
He is the strength of my life as I fight
With those who against me stand.
Though a great army confronts me
Fearless, my heart shall upon Him depend
Fearless, my heart shall upon Him depend!
Daily the Lord I will seek
Drawn by His goodness and grace
Words of great comfort and peace He will speak
To me in the secret place
So shall my head be exalted,
Triumphing over each foe that I face –
Triumphing over each foe that I face!
Turn not Your face Lord from me;
Be ever more at my side.
Though both my mother and father forsake me
I will be satisfied.
Filled with great joy in His temple,
I shall sing praises to Jesus my king –
I shall sing praises to Jesus my king!
Keep me from craft and deceit;
Teach me to walk in Your way,
For had I never believed I would see
God’s goodness in this our day,
I would be silent and broken,
Yet now I wait with strong hope in my heart –
Yet now I wait with strong hope in my heart!
