lyrics

One thing I have asked from the Lord
That I'll seek, that I may dwell
With You all my days to behold Your beauty
Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice
Be gracious and answer me
When You said "seek my face" my heart said...

Your face, O Lord, I shall seek
You've been my help, please don't leave
My father and mother forsaken, Lord will take me up
Teach me your way, O Lord
And lead me in a level path
Don't deliver me over to my enemies

The Lord is my light and my salvation
The Lord is the strength of my life
The Lord is my light and my salvation
The Lord is the strength of my life
So I will not be afraid, no I will not be afraid
Because the Lord is my light, the Lord is my light, the Lord is my light

I would have despaired unless I
Believed I would see the goodness of the Lord
Here in the land of the living
Wait for the Lord and be strong
Let your heart take courage
Wait for the Lord here in the land of the living

I would have despaired unless I
Believed I would see the goodness of the Lord
Here in the land of the living
Tho hosts may encamp against me
Tho war arise against me
I won't fear, I will be confident

Through prison cells or loss of careers
We won't fear
Slandered and unmade
We will not be afraid
Though cops come in riot gear
We won't fear
Conflicted and struggling
We will not be afraid
Our very lives - the risk we must bear
To witness to your kingdom here
Lord You have heard their threats
Make Your servants bolder yet
Lord, when I'm afraid, make me to believe
