The Lord is my light and my help. Psalm 26: 1.

~o~

Psalm 26: 1. 4. 13–14
Triumphant trust in God

1The Lord is my light and my help;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life
before whom shall I shrink?

4There is one thing I ask of the Lord,
for this I long,
to live in the house of the Lord,
all the days of my life,
to savour the sweetness of the Lord,
to behold his temple.

13I am sure I shall see the Lord's goodness
in the land of the living.
14Hope in him, hold firm and take heart.
Hope in the Lord!
