The LORD hears when I call to Him.
But You, O LORD are a shield about me,
My glory, and the One who lifts my Head.
The LORD sustains me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me round about.
Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher. Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety.
Those who love Your law have great peace,
And nothing causes them to stumble.
For thus the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said,
“In repentance and rest you will be saved,
In quietness and trust is your strength.”
