Psalm 27:1-11

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear? ♦ The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, ♦ they stumbled and fell.

3 Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not be afraid, ♦ and though there rise up war against me, yet will I put my trust in him.

4 One thing have I asked of the Lord and that alone I seek: ♦ that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,

5 To behold the fair beauty of the Lord ♦ and to seek his will in his temple.

6 For in the day of trouble he shall hide me in his shelter; ♦ in the secret place of his dwelling shall he hide me and set me high upon a rock.

7 And now shall he lift up my head ♦ above my enemies round about me;

8 Therefore will I offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness; ♦ I will sing and make music to the Lord.

9 Hear my voice, O Lord, when I call; ♦ have mercy upon me and answer me.

10 My heart tells of your word, ‘Seek my face.’ ♦ Your face, Lord, will I seek.

11 Hide not your face from me, ♦ nor cast your servant away in displeasure.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit : as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
