Walking through this world of sin,

Despair creeps to my heart;

Yet Christ speaks to me within,

And peace my LORD imparts.

“I am with You,” he has said,

“The Comfortor is yours.

Walk the path which I have laid,

And trust my perfect Word.”

Other Christians walk near by,

Their presence I enjoy;

The Noble ones are my delight,

My Portion is the LORD.

New strength through joy my LORD doth give,

And I can walk again;

With songs of praise my heart is filled, 

With joy and hope I run.

“O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.” 

Psalm 16:2-3
