B. H. Kennedy 

Save me, O God; for thou alone
My tower of refuge art;

Save me, O God; for thou alone
My tower of refuge art;
Thou art my Lord, my only good;
I bless thee from my heart.

The Lord alone shall be my cup,
And mine inheritance:
And thou art he that guards my lot
From every evil chance.

The fields wherein my lot is cast
In loveliness excel,
And in her pleasant heritage
My soul delights to dwell.

I thank the Lord who teacheth me
To read his will aright;
Yea, by his blessing do my reins
Correct me every night.

I set the Lord before my face,
And trust in him alone;
At my right hand the Lord doth stand;
I shall not be o’erthrown.

Therefore my heart is very glad;
My spirit shall rejoice;
My flesh in tranquil hope shall rest,
For thou wilt crown thy choice.

The path of life thou wilt display,
And keep for me in store
The fulness of thy joy, and peace
With thee for evermore.
