Psalm 27: I wait for You

You are my light and my help… whom shall I fear?
  You are the stronghold of my life… of whom shall I be afraid?
     When evildoers come to eat my flesh, my adversaries, my foes,  they shall stumble and fall.
       Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not tremble.
         Though war rise up against me, in this shall I trust.

One thing have I asked of You, one thing I request.
   To dwell in Your house all my days, to be concealed in Your sukkah on the day of evil,
       to be hidden in Your tent, lifted high upon a rock.

Raise my head above my enemies, I will offer sacrifices of teruah and sing praises to You.
   Hear my voice when I call, and be gracious and answer me.

For I seek Your face… please don’t hide from me or from anger, turn me away, 
  don't cast me off or forsake me, f
or You've been my help.

Though my mother and father have left me, You gather me up.
  Teach me Your ways and lead me to a even path, for there are those who lie in wait for me.
     Do not deliver me to my adversaries,for false witnesses rise up against me who breath violence.


I wait for You and stand strong,
  my heart holding courage, as I wait for You.
