A Psalme of Dauid.
The Lord is my light & my saluation, whom shall I feare?
the Lorde is the strength of my life, of whome shall I be afraide?
When the wicked, euen mine enemies and my foes came vpon mee to eate vp my flesh;
they stumbled and fell.
Though an hoste pitched against me, mine heart should not be afraide: though warre be raised against me, I will trust in this.
One thing haue I desired of the Lorde, that I will require, euen that I may dwell in the house of the Lorde all the dayes of my life, to beholde the beautie of the Lorde, and to visite his Temple.
For in the time of trouble hee shall hide mee in his Tabernacle: in the secrete place of his pauillion shall he hide me, and set me vp vpon a rocke.
And nowe shall hee lift vp mine head aboue mine enemies rounde about mee: therefore wil I offer in his Tabernacle sacrifices of ioy: I wil sing and praise the Lord.
Hearken vnto my voyce, O Lorde, when I crie: haue mercie also vpon mee and heare mee.
When thou saidest, Seeke ye my face, mine heart answered vnto thee, O Lorde, I will seeke thy face.
Hide not therefore thy face from mee, nor cast thy seruat away in displeasure: thou hast bene my succour: leaue me not, neither forsake mee, O God of my saluation.
Though my father and my mother shoulde forsake me, yet the Lorde will gather me vp.
Teache mee thy way, O Lorde, and leade me in a right path, because of mine enemies.
Giue me not vnto the lust of mine aduersaries: for there are false witnesses risen vp against me, and such as speake cruelly.
I should haue fainted, except I had beleeued to see the goodnes of the Lord in the land of the liuing.
Hope in the Lord: be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart, and trust in the Lord.
