Words: The Psalter for Christian Worship, Michael Morgan
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.
