Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

confident in the Lord


You are the light and salvation—whom shall we fear?
      You are our stronghold —of whom shall we be afraid?
When the wicked advance against us to destroy and devour
      please protect and cause them stumble and fall. 
Though an army besiege me, our hearts will not fear;
      though war break out against us, even then 

we will be confident.

 One thing we ask from the Lord, this only do we seek:
    that we may dwell in Your house, Father, all the days of my life.

For in the day of trouble, we are sure You will keep us safe in Your dwelling;
    You will hide us in the shelter of his sacred tent and set us high upon a rock.

Then we will be exalted above the enemies who surround; 
    at Your sacred tent we will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
We will sing and make music to the Lord.

 Hear our voices when we call, Lord; 
    be merciful to us and answer us. 
 Our hearts say of You, “Seek his face!”
 Your face, Lord, I will seek. 

Do not hide your face from us, do not turn Your servants away in anger; 
    You have been our helper.
Do not reject me or forsake us, God our Savior. 

Though our families forsake us,
    the Lord will receive us. 

 Teach us Your way, Lord;
    lead us in a straight path because of our oppressors. 

 Do not turn us over to the desire of our foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against us, spouting malicious accusations.

We remain confident of this:

   We will see the goodness of the Lord
 in the land of the living. 

 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.
