The Lord is Near to You

Protect me, Lord God!
I run to You for safety,
and I have said,
“Only You are my Lord!
Every good thing I have
is a gift from You.”

You, Lord, are all I want!
You are my choice,
and You keep me safe.
You make my life pleasant,
and my future is bright.

I praise You, Lord,
for being my guide.
Even in the darkest night,
Your teachings fill my mind.
I will always look to You,
as You stand beside me
and protect me from fear.
With all my heart,
I will celebrate,
and I can safely rest.

You have shown me
the path to life,
and You make me glad
by being near to me.

Psalm 16.1, 2, 5-9, 11a
