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,
even mine enemies and my foes,
came upon me to eat up my flesh,
they stumbled and fell.
Though an host should encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear:
though war should rise against me,
in this will I be confident.
One 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.
For 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.
And 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
