Psalm 27 (A Preacher's Psalm)

I stand to claim the Rock beneath my feet,
the Foundation of my life.
Sing in triumph, o my soul.
Shout out: "How great is my God!"

The Rock is my confidence and my conviction,
the very boldness in my step.
Dance with joy, my soul, to your core.
Lift a hand to the Spirit's power.

Through my weakness and fear, the Rock is my comfort;
When my own strength fails, the Foundation is firm.
O my tongue, preach that God is good.
Prophesy that the love of God never fails.

Even in the midnights of life's trials,
My Rock shines through like the noonday sun.
Rise up, my soul, to live this day.
Proclaim the good news until you are hoarse:
"The Living Rock shall not be moved."
