Psalm of the Day Bread of Life 19 September 2020
The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation
1The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom | shall I fear?*
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I | be afraid?
2When evildoers assail me
to eat | up my flesh,*
my adversaries and foes,
it is they who stum- | ble and fall.
3Though an army encamp against me,
my heart | shall not fear;*
though war arise against me,
yet I will be | confident.
4One thing have I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek | after:*
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to inquire in his | temple.
5For he will hide me in his shelter
in the day of | trouble;*
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will lift me high up- | on a rock.
6And now my head shall be lifted up
above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
sacrifices with | shouts of joy;*
I will sing and make melody | to the Lord.
7Hear, O Lord, when I | cry aloud;*
be gracious to me and | answer me!
8You have said, | “Seek my face.”*
My heart says to you,
“Your face, Lord, | do I seek.”
9Hide not your face from me.
Turn not your servant away in | anger,*
O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off; forsake me not,
O God of my sal- | vation!
