The Lord is my light and salvation

The Lord is my light and salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
One thing have I desired of the Lord,
That will I seek;
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.
Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice;
Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
When thou saidst, seek ye My face;
My heart said unto Thee,
Thy face, O Lord, will I seek.
Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen thine heart;
Wait, I say on the Lord.
Wait, I say on the Lord.

As a young Christian this psalm is indelibly etched in my heart from the Dallas psalm tape 38 years ago.

Thank the Lord for His keeping power.

"My flesh and my heart fail, but God is the rock of my heart and my portion forever."

Psalm 73:26


It would be so helpful if there was a way you could add people singing these songs. For those of us, not so musically inclined, who are trying to learn the songs to lead children in worship, it is much easier to pick it up when you've heard it sung. Thank you.
