A HYMN FOR TODAY – The LORD Is My Light and My Salvation

A HYMN FOR TODAY

The LORD is my light and my salvation.
Whom shall I fear?
And He is my strength, the defense of my life.
Whom shall I fear?
Have mercy, O LORD, and answer my cry.
Turn not away.
For You are my help, the God of salvation.
Turn not away.

O LORD, lead me now in Your path straight and even.
Teach me Your way.
I will not despair; Your goodness sustains me.
Teach me Your way.
To dwell in His house all the days of my life:
This shall I seek.
And oh, to behold the LORD in His beauty!
This shall I seek.

[Chorus]
Wait, wait, O wait on the LORD.
Be strong and take courage!
Wait on the LORD.
Wait, wait, O wait on the LORD.
Be strong and take courage!
Yes, wait on the LORD.

  1. Beautiful song by my der Sister-Friend, Charli Couchman. Memorable way to commit Psalm 27’s sentiment to memory. God is pure Genius at providing us with song and singing to help us express the feelings and praises His Greatness brings about within our hearts. Thanks, friend Steve, for sharing this wonderful reminder. You help me.
