KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 3:

     1 A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. 2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. 3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

     4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah. 5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me. 6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. 7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. 8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.(KJV)

1. In God, my faithful God, 
I trust when dark my road; 
Though many woes o’ertake me, 
Yet He will not forsake me. 
His love it is doth send them 
And, when ’tis best, will end them. 

2. My sins assail me sore, 
But I despair no more. 
I build on Christ, who loves me; 
From this Rock nothing moves me. 
To Him I all surrender, 
To Him, my soul’s Defender. 

3. If death my portion be, 
Then death is gain to me 
And Christ my Life forever, 
From whom death cannot sever. 
Come when it may, He’ll shield me, 
To Him I wholly yield me. 

4. O Jesus Christ, my Lord, 
So meek in deed and word, 
Thou once didst die to save us 
Because Thy love would have us 
Be heirs of heavenly gladness 
When ends this life of sadness. 

5. “So be it,” then, I say 
With all my heart each day. 
We, too, dear Lord, adore Thee. 
We sing for joy before Thee. 
Guide us while here we wander 
Until we praise Thee yonder.
