You LORD, are all I want!

Psalm 16 CEV

(A special psalm by David.)

The Best Choice

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.
I am your chosen one.
You won't leave me in the grave or let my body decay.
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.
