How wonderful are your gifts to me; how good they are!
I praise the Lord, because he guides me, and in the night my conscience warns me.
I am always aware of the Lord's presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me.
And so I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure,
because you protect me from the power of death. 1 I have served you faithfully, and you will not abandon me to the world of the dead.
You will show me the path that leads to life; 2 your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever.
