      A Psalm of Confidence
      God, my light and my salvation,
         In whose strength my hope is laid;
      Confident in my salvation,
         I shall never be afraid.
      Evil hosts may rise against me,
         Wars distress, and flesh decays;
      Yet the cruelest death imagined
         But begins my song of praise
      Shelter me within the haven
         Of Thy house all time to come;
      On the rock of Thy protection,
         Let me safely find a home.
      Lift me high above the legions
         Who would rail against Thy word;
      O'er the tumult of division
         Make my cru for peace be heard.
      When my trust is disappointed,
         Faith confronted with disdain;
      Friend and foe defeat my purpose,
         Even then wilt Thou sustain.
      Had I not with eyes believing
         Seen the goodness of Thy face,
      Never could I taste Thy pleasure,
         Nor await Thy saving grace.
