Psalms 27:4-10 CEB
I have asked one thing from the LORD—
it’s all I seek:
to live in the LORD’s house all the days of my life,
seeing the LORD’s beauty
and constantly adoring his temple.
Because he will shelter me in his own dwelling
during troubling times;
he will hide me in a secret place in his own tent;
he will set me up high, safe on a rock.
Now my head is higher than the enemies surrounding me,
and I will offer sacrifices in God’s tent—
sacrifices with shouts of joy!
I will sing and praise the LORD.
LORD, listen to my voice when I cry out—
have mercy on me and answer me!
Come, my heart says, seek God’s face.
LORD, I do seek your face!
Please don’t hide it from me!
Don’t push your servant aside angrily—
you have been my help!
God who saves me,
don’t neglect me!
Don’t leave me all alone!
Even if my father and mother left me all alone,
the LORD would take me in.
