18 I love you, O Lord, my strength.
4 The cords of death encompassed me;
6 In my distress I called upon the Lord;
7 Then the earth reeled and rocked;
13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens,
16 He sent from on high, he took me;
20 The Lord dealt with me according to my righteousness;
25 With the merciful you show yourself merciful;
31 For who is God, but the Lord?
43 You delivered me from strife with the people;
46 The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock,
49 For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,

The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation
27 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
2 When evildoers assail me
3 Though an army encamp against me,
4 One thing have I asked of the Lord,
5 For he will hide me in his shelter
6 And now my head shall be lifted up
7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
11 Teach me your way, O Lord,
13 I believe that I shall look[f] upon the goodness of the Lord

Psalm 31 English Standard Version (ESV)
Into Your Hand I Commit My Spirit
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
31 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge;
3 For you are my rock and my fortress;
6 I hate[a] those who pay regard to worthless idols,
9 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress;
11 Because of all my adversaries I have become a reproach,
14 But I trust in you, O Lord;
19 Oh, how abundant is your goodness,
21 Blessed be the Lord,
23 Love the Lord, all you his saints!

16 But I will sing of your strength;

Forsake Me Not When My Strength Is Spent

22 I will also praise you with the harp
