1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom then shall I fear?:
the Lord is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes,
come upon me to devour me:
they shall stumble and fall.
3 If an army encamp against me,
my heart shall not be afraid:
and if war should rise against me, yet will I trust.
4 One thing I have asked from the Lord,
which I will require:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
5 To see the fair beauty of the Lord:
and to seek his will in his temple.
6 For he will hide me under his shelter
in the day of trouble:
and conceal me in the shadow of his tent,
and set me high upon a rock.
7 And now he will lift up my head:
above my enemies round about me.
8 And I will offer sacrifices in his sanctuary
I will sing, I will sing praises to the Lord.
9 O Lord, hear my voice when I cry:
have mercy upon me and answer me.
10 My heart has said of you, ‘Seek his face’:
your face, Lord, I will seek.
