Have mercy on me, O God,
have mercy on me,
for in you my soul takes refuge.
I will take refuge in
the shadow of your wings
until the disaster is passed.
Psalm 15: 2-5
He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellow man,
who despises a vile man
but honors those who fear the Lord,
who keeps his oath
even when it hurts
who lends his money without usury
and does not accept a bribe
He who does these things
will never be shaken.
You are my Lord,
apart from you I have no good thing.
My God is my rock in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my
salvation, my stronghold.
You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness to light.
May the words of my mouth
meditations of my heart
in your sight.
The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want,
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul.
He guides me in the paths of righteousness,
for His name sake.
Even though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.......
.......Surely goodness and love will follow me
days of my life and
I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
