My Heart is Glad
By June Stein
I said to the Lord, You are my Lord;
apart from You, I have no good thing.
You have assigned me my portion and cup;
I’m secure, what ‘ere life may bring,
I will praise the Lord, Who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me,
I have the Lord always before me;
and at my right hand, is He;
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body rests secure,
You have made known to me the path of life;
with You, there is joy evermore!
[Based on Psalm 16]
