Psalm 16


(Isaiah 45: 22, "Look to Me and be saved,
All you ends of the earth. 
For I am God and there is no other.") 
 
Keep me safe, My God,
My trust is in Your Hand.
You are my cup and portion
As I live within this land. 
 
My heart cries deep within me,
"You, You are the Light
That guides me, keeps me day by day
By Your sovereign power and might." 
 
If I would follow other gods
Seeking fame or gold,
My sorrows would be multiplied to me. 
They'd leave me dead and cold.  
 
But You, oh Lord, I'll bless forever
And I shall not be moved,
Because You are holding my right hand;
Your steadfastness You've proved. 
 
You'll show me how to walk my path
On earth, without disruption.
And when at last I see Your Face,
I will not see corruption. 
 
My flesh rejoices, rests in hope.
My soul and spirit, too,  
That I shall have eternal life,
My God, to live with You.
