Psalm 27 - 2nd Version
ST. JOHN | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
William H. Havergal, 1793-1870
1 JEHOVAH is my light,
And my salvation he;
Who then shall me affright?
The Lord is unto me
My life's sure stronghold, ever near;
Of whom then shall I stand in fear?
2 When wicked men, my foes
And adversaries all,
To eat my flesh arose,
They stumbled and did fall.
Though hosts surround, I will not quail;
In this I trust, though war assail.
3 For one thing did I pray,
This I'll seek to obtain,
That all my life I may
In the Lord's house remain;
Jehovah's beauty to admire,
And in his temple to inquire.
4 Within his tent he will
Me hide in evil days,
Me in his tent conceal,
And on a rock me raise.
And now my head shall lifted be
Above my foes that compass me.
5 Into his courts with joy
I'll sacrifices bring;
Songs shall my lips employ,
Praise to the Lord I'll sing.
Lord, hear me when I cry to thee;
On me have mercy; answer me.
6 Thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
Then did my heart reply,
In thine abundant grace,
Thy face, Lord, seek will I.
In wrath hide not thy face from me,
Nor put thy servant far from thee.
7 My help of old art thou,
To thee I me betake;
O God, my Saviour, now
Leave me not, nor forsake.
When father, mother, both me leave,
The Lord himself will me receive.
8 Teach me, O Lord, thy way;
Me in a plain path guide,
For foes my steps survey:
Me give not to their pride:
For false accusers 'gainst me rise,
And such as breathe out cruelties.
9 I fainted had unless
I had believed to see
The Lord's own graciousness
'Mong them that living be.
Wait on the Lord; be strong of heart;
Yea, wait, and he shall strength impart.
