15. God is my strong salvation

1 God is my strong salvation,
what foe have I to fear?
in darkness and temptation
my light, my help, is near;
though hosts encamp around me,
firm at my post I stand;
what terror can confound me,
with God at my right hand?

2 Place on the Lord reliance,
my soul with courage wait;
his truth my reassurance
when faint and desolate;
his might my heart shall strengthen,
his love my joy increase;
mercy my days shall lengthen,
the Lord will give me peace.
