Psalm 27 describes some of the most painful personal suffering that a human can endure. David is surrounded by enemies and abandoned by friends, and even his own mother and father have forsaken him. Despite all this, his faith is steadfast. He seeks God with his whole heart, knowing that no one else can help him in his distress. He will not let go of hope, no matter how great the suffering or how long the wait. May God grant us to have this kind of faith when our time of suffering comes!

Of David.

The LORD is my light and my salvation.
Whom shall I fear? Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life.
Of whom shall I be afraid?

When evildoers come to feed upon my flesh,
My enemies and foes: they stumble and fall.
Though a force encamps against me, my heart will not fear;
Through war I’m confident.

One thing I ask from the LORD, that I seek:
To dwell in HIS house all the days of my life,
To look on the beauty of the LORD,
In his temple meditate.

For He’ll hide me in his shelter on the troubled day.
He will cover me in the cover of his tent.
On a rock He’ll lift me high. Now my head will be raised up
Above my surrounding foes.

And then I will offer in the shelter of his tent
My sacrifice, and shouts of joy.
And so I will sing out unto the LORD,
I will sing in praise.

Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud.
Be gracious to me, and answer me.
You have said, “Seek my face,” and my heart says to you,
“Your face, LORD, do I seek.”

Don’t hide yourself from me, or reject me in your wrath.
You have been my help; do not cast me off!
Don’t ever leave me, my Savior, my God,
for my father and mother left.

But the LORD will take me in. LORD, teach me your way.
Lead me true, because of my foes.
Don’t give me up to them, false and violent men;
Against me they rise up.

I believe that I’ll look on the goodness
Of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD! Be strong! Set your heart,
And wait for the LORD.
