Psalm 27 - 1st Version
DURHAM | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Ravenscroft's Psalter, 1621
1 THE Lord's my light and saving health;
Who shall make me dismayed?
My life's strength is the Lord; of whom
Then shall I be afraid?
2 What time mine enemies and foes,
Most wicked persons all,
To eat my flesh against me rose,
They stumbled and did fall.
3 Against me though an host encamp,
My heart yet fearless is:
Though war against me rise, I will
Be confident in this.
4 One thing I of the Lord desired,
And will seek to obtain,
That all days of my life I may
Within God's house remain;
That I the beauty of the Lord
Behold may and admire,
And that I in his holy place
May reverently inquire.
5 For he in his pavilion shall
Me hide in evil days;
In secret of his tent me hide,
And on a rock me raise.
6 And now even at this present time
Mine head shall lifted be
Above all those that are my foes,
And round encompass me:
Then offerings of joyfulness
Into his house I'll bring;
And I will sing unto the Lord,
Yea, I will praises sing.
7 O Lord, give ear unto my voice,
When I do cry to thee;
Upon me also mercy have,
And do thou answer me.
8 When thou didst say, Seek ye my face,
Then unto thee reply
Thus did my heart, Above all things
Thy face, Lord, seek will I.
9 Far from me hide not thou thy face;
Put not away from thee
Thy servant in thy wrath: thou hast
An helper been to me.
O God, who my salvation art,
Leave me not, nor forsake;
10 Though father, mother, both me leave,
The Lord me up will take.
11 O Lord, instruct me in thy way,
To me a leader be
In a plain path, because of those
That hatred bear to me.
12 Give me not to mine enemies' will;
For witnesses that lie
Against me risen are, and such
As breathe out cruelty.
13 I fainted had, unless that I
Believed had to see
The Lord's own goodness in the land
Of them that living be.
14 Wait on the Lord, and be thou strong,
And he shall strength afford
Unto thine heart; yea, do thou wait,
I say, upon the Lord.
