My Light and My Salvation

The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Of whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life.
Of whom shall I be afraid?

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

Though a host should encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear:
though war should rise against me,
in this will I be confident.

One thing have I desired of the Lord
is that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to inquire in his temple.
