Lyrics 1. The Lord's my light, my Savior dear. In Him my heart is stayed. My refuge strong; whom shall I fear? Why should I be afraid? When enemies attack my flesh To conquer and destroy, In this my heart will be refreshed: Jehovah is my joy, Jehovah is my joy.
2. One thing have I desired of Him, For this one thing I yearn: To gaze on Him with eyes undimmed, Into His house return. The Lord will hide me in His home When trouble shall arise, For from the Lord I find shalom; On Him I gaze my eyes, On His I gaze my eyes.
3. Hear me, O Lord; I cry aloud! Be gracious—answer me! I seek You, Lord! My heart is bowed; Hide not Your face from me. Turn not Your face of anger here, Though I am full of sin! Cast not me off, but keep me near; In mercy take me in, In mercy take me in.
4. Teach me Your wondrous way, O Lord, And lead me in Your path: False witnesses have stored Up lies and harbored sinful wrath. I soon shall see God's goodness there Within the living land. Wait, wait, my soul; do not despair! God's providence is planned, God's providence is planned.
