(4 votes)
Verse 1
The Lord Almighty is my light,
He is my Saviour ever near,
And, since my strength is in His might
Who can distress me or affright?
What evil shall I fear?

Verse 2
O Lord, regard me when I cry,
In mercy hear me when I speak;
Thou bidst me seek Thy face, and I,
O Lord, with willing heart reply,
Thy face, Lord, will I seek.

Verse 3
Hide not Thy face afar from me,
For Thou alone canst help afford;
O cast me not away from Thee
Nor let my soul forsaken be,
My Saviour and my Lord.

Verse 4
Though earthly friends no pity take,
Yet Thy compassion knows no end;
E'en tho' my father shall forsake,
E'en tho' my mother's love shall break,
The Lord will be my friend.

Verse 5
My heart had failed in fear and woe
Unless in God I had believed,
Assured that He would mercy show
And that my life His grace should know,
Nor was my hope deceived.

Verse 6
Fear not, though succor be delayed,
Still wait for God, and He will hear;
Be strong, nor be thy heart dismayed,
Wait, and the Lord shall bring thee aid,
Yea, trust and never fear.
