Lyrics:

Psalm 16.1  Preserve me, O my God;
I put my trust in You.
LORD, I confess, You are my Lord;
no good have I but You.
2 The godly ones on earth,
those holy in your sight,
3 The noble and majestic ones,
fill me with great delight.

4 Their sorrows multiply
who after idols seek.
To them I’ll no blood off’rings make;
their names I’ll never speak.
5 The LORD the portion is
of my inheritance.
He fills my cup, my lot prepares,
secures to me His grants.

6 The lines that fell to me
enclose a pleasant site.
The heritage that I received
to me is a delight.
7 I bless the LORD who guides
with counsel that is right.
My heart within me He directs
to teach me in the night.

8 I always keep the LORD
before me, Him to see.
Because He is at my right hand
I never moved shall be.
9 Thus gladness fills my soul;
my joy must be expressed
with my whole being, for my flesh
securely finds its rest.

10 My soul You will not leave
in death’s dark pit to be.
Corruption You will not permit
Your Holy One to see.
11 The path of life You’ll show;
of joy You hold great store.
before Your face, at Your right hand,
are pleasures evermore.
