The Best Choice – Psalm 16

You are my place of safety
you protect me
you alone are my God.

You have given me so much,
you are all I can need
you make life good
even on my darkest days.

You are a trustworthy guide,
a light on the way,
always standing by me
and walking with me.

Lord,
I want to celebrate you,
all you are
and all you do
in and through
my life.
I bring you
my worship and Praise.

You
are the best choice

Always

Psalm 16 (CEV)

(A special psalm by David.)

The Best Choice

16 Protect me, Lord God!
    I run to you for safety,
and I have said,
    “Only you are my Lord!
    Every good thing I have
    is a gift from you.”

Your people are wonderful,
    and they make me happy,
    but worshipers of other gods
    will have much sorrow.
I refuse to offer sacrifices
of blood to those gods
    or worship in their name.

You, Lord, are all I want!
    You are my choice,
    and you keep me safe.
You make my life pleasant,
    and my future is bright.

I praise you, Lord,
    for being my guide.
Even in the darkest night,
    your teachings fill my mind.
I will always look to you,
    as you stand beside me
    and protect me from fear.
With all my heart,
I will celebrate,
    and I can safely rest.

10 I am your chosen one.
You won’t leave me in the grave
    or let my body decay.
11 You have shown me
    the path to life,
    and you make me glad
    by being near to me.
Sitting at your right side,
    I will always be joyful.
