|727||THE LORD IS MY LIGHT||Psalm 27, NKJV|
The Lord is my light and my salvation;|
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
Though an army should encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war should rise against me,
In this I will be confident.
One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
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.
For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.
And now my head shall be lifted up
above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of
joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes,
I will sing praises to the Lord.
When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take care of me.
Teach me Your way, 0 Lord,
And lead me in a smooth path,
because of my enemies.
Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
