PSALM 18.25-45
Deliverance; God our strength; trust in God
GOD GIVES US LIGHT upon our way, a lamp about our feet to shine;
from doubt and darkness into day
he shows the path of life divine.
2 In him is power beyond our own,
a word of promise all may plead;
our hope is found in him alone,
a sure defence in time of need.
3 For when by self and sin beset,
when strength of will and courage fail,
his mighty arm is with us yet,
his word is sure, and shall prevail.
4 He reigns in triumph; by his hand is final victory assured,
the Rock on whom his people stand,
the one supreme and sovereign Lord.
