O Lord, you are the center of my lifeKeep me safe O God, I take refuge in you.
I will always praise you
I will always serve you
I will always keep you in my sight
I say to the Lord "You are my God,
My happiness lies in you alone,
My happiness lies in you alone." (Refrain)
I will bless you, Lord, you give me counsel,
And even at night direct my heart.
I keep you, Lord, ever in my sight
Since you are at my right I shall stand firm. (Refrain)
And so my heart rejoices, my soul is glad
Even in safety shall my body rest
For you will not leave my soul among the dead,
Nor let your beloved know decay. (Refrain)
You will show me the path of life,
The fullness of joy in your presence,
At your right hand, at your right hand
Happiness forever. (Refrain)
