The Lord is my hope and my glory.
The Lord is the song that I sing:
so tender and loving a shepherd,
so rooted in justice, a king.
When shadow confuses my vision
when sorrow lays claim to my heart,
God is my refuge, my rock and my shield.
I will rely on the Lord.
Near to death, I cried “Save me!” and you heard.
You are God, and you lift up the poor.
All who trust in your promise will be saved,
for your word has been tested in fire.
