Letra: I love the Lord, in him my soul delights. Upon his word, I ponder day and night. He's heard my cry, brought visions to my sleep and kept me safe o'er deserts and the deep. He's filled my heart with his consuming love and borne me high on wings of his great dove.
Yet oft I groan: "O wretched man am I". My flesh is weak and I'm encompassed by a world of sin, which holds me in its thrall, if I give in and to temptations fall. Then strength grows slack, I waste in sorrows vale; my peace destroyed, my enemies prevail.
Awake, my soul! No longer droop in sin. Rejoice, my heart! And let me praise again, the Lord my God, who is my rock and stay to keep me strict upon his straight, plain way. Oh, let me shake at the first sight of sin and thus escape my foes without and in.
I love the Lord, in him my soul delights.
