Jehovah Is My Light

  1. Jehovah is my light
    and my salvation near;
    who shall my soul affright
    or cause my heart to fear?
    While God my strength, my life sustains,
    secure from fear my soul remains.
  2. When evildoers came
    to make my life their prey,
    they stumbled in their shame
    and fell in deep dismay;
    though hosts make war on ev’ry side,
    still fearless I in God confide.
  3. My one request has been,
    and still this pray’r I raise,
    that I may dwell within
    God’s house through all my days,
    Jehovah’s beauty to admire,
    and in his temple to inquire.
  4. When troubles round me swell,
    when fears and dangers throng,
    securely I will dwell
    in his pavilion strong;
    within the shelter of his tent
    he hides me ’til the storm is spent.
  5. Uplifted on a rock
    above my foes around,
    amid the battle shock
    my song shall still resound;
    then joyful off’rings I will bring,
    Jehovah’s praise my heart shall sing.
