Psalm 27 (Tune - Argyle)
Ps. 27 (Argyle - 2nd page).png

1 The LORD's my saviour and my light - 

who will make me dismayed? 

the LORD's the stronghold of my life - 

why should I be afraid?  

2 When evildoers threaten me

to take my life away

My adversaries and my foes 

will stumble in that day. 

3 Although an army hems me in, 

my heart will feel no dread; 

though war against me should arise, 

I will lift up my head. 

4 One thing I'll plead before the LORD, 

and this I'll seek always: 

that I may come within God's house 

and dwell there all my days - 


that on the beauty of the LORD

I constantly may gaze,

and in his house may seek to know

direction in his ways.  

5 For in his dwelling he will keep 

me safe in troubled days; 

within his tent he'll shelter me, 

and on a rock me raise. 

6 My head will then be lifted high 

above my enemies; 

And in his tent I'll sacrifice

with shouts of joy and praise.  

7 LORD, hear me when I call to you; 

be merciful and speak! 

8 "Come, seek my face!" you told my heart;

your face, LORD, I will seek. 

9 O do not hide your face from me 

and do not turn aside 

Your servant in your righteous wrath

for you have been my guide. 

O God my Saviour, leave me not; 

do not reject my plea. 

10 My parents may forsake me, LORD, 

but you will welcome me. 

11 Teach me, O LORD, how I should live, 

and lead me in your way; 

Make straight my path, because my foes

oppress me every day. 

12 Give me not over to the will 

of vehement enemies; 

for liars rise to slander me 

and breathe out cruelties. 

13 Yet I am sure that in this life

God's goodness I will see. 

14 Wait for the LORD; be strong, take heart.

For Him wait patiently.
