Keep me safe, O God

Psalm 15

  • Refrain:
    Keep me safe, O God,
    I take refuge, refuge in you.
    Keep me safe, O God,
    I take refuge, refuge in you.
  1. O Lord, it 's who are my portion and cup;
    it's you yourself who are my prize.
    I keep the Lord ever in my sight:
    since God is at my right hand, I shall stand firm.
  2. And so my heart rejoices, my soul is glad;
    even my body rests in safety.
    For you'll not leave my soul among the dead,
    nore let your beloved know decay.
  3. You will show me the path of life,
    the fullest joy in your presence,
    at your right hand, at your right hand
    happiness for ever, for ever.
