1 Protect me, God, for the only safety I know is found in the moments I seek You. 2 I told You, Eternal One, “You are my Lord, for the only good I know in this world is found in You alone.”
3 The beauty of faith-filled people encompasses me. They are true, and my heart is thrilled beyond measure. 4 All the while the despair of many, who abandoned Your goodness for the empty promises of false gods, increases day by day. I refuse to pour out blood offerings, to utter their names from my lips.
5 You, Eternal One, are my sustenance and my life-giving cup. In that cup, You hold my future and my eternal riches. 6 My home is surrounded in beauty; You have gifted me with abundance and a rich legacy.
7 I will bless the Eternal, whose wise teaching orchestrates my days and centers my mind at night. 8 He is ever present with me; at all times He goes before me. I will not live in fear or abandon my calling because He stands at my right hand.
9 This is a good life—my heart is glad, my soul is full of joy, and my body is at rest. Who could want for more? 10 You will not abandon me to experience death and the grave or leave me to rot alone.
11 Instead, You direct me on the path that leads to a beautiful life. As I walk with You, the pleasures are never-ending, and I know true joy and contentment.
