The Lord is my light and my salvation; I will fear no one. The Lord protects me from all danger; I will never be afraid.
When evil people attack me and try to kill me, they stumble and fall.
Even if a whole army surrounds me, I will not be afraid; even if enemies attack me, I will still trust God. a4
I have asked the Lord for one thing; one thing only do I want: to live in the Lord's house all my life, to marvel there at his goodness, and to ask for his guidance.
In times of trouble he will shelter me; he will keep me safe in his Temple and make me secure on a high rock.
So I will triumph over my enemies around me. With shouts of joy I will offer sacrifices in his Temple; I will sing, I will praise the Lord.
