The one who walks in the ways of Lord,
Dwells in the mercy of the Most High.
He alone is my refuge and my fortress,
It is in Him alone that I place my trust.
Only He can spare me from the snares,
He alone delivers me from sins plague.
Under His wings I will find my refuge
His faithfulness my shield and protection.
I will not tremble with fear in the night,
Nor will I flee from accusers in the day,
Nor the wickedness that lurks in the dark,
Nor the devastation that strikes at noon.
Because my Lord leads and guides me
He will dwell within my heart forever,
He is my safe harbor and my refuge,
No evil shall be ensue as I walk with Him.
