Psalm 16: "In you, O Lord, I put my trust"

Psalm 16
In you, O Lord, I put my trust;
Preserve me in my time of need,
I lie before you in the dust,
And have no goodness there to plead.

Among the saints on earth I reap
Pleasures exceeding all below;
This is the company I keep,
These are the truest friends I know.

Let others choose the stuff of earth,
And worship empty idol thrones;
My riches spring from heavenly birth,
Through Jesus who for sin atones.

I bless the Lord who counsel gives,
And in the darkness grants me light;
I stand near him who ever lives,
Secure and happy in his might.

My heart will therefore gladly sing,
Possessed of an eternal joy:
In life and death with Christ my King,
A bond that nothing can destroy.

You show your saints the path of life,
Great joy with you whom we adore;
An end to every grief and strife
At your right hand forevermore.
