in the shadow
of the Almighty,
Who say to the Lord, "Thou art my refuge,
And my fortress, my God in whom I trust,"

And under his wings you may hide.

You shall not be afraid of the terror
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Of the pestilence

And ten thousand at your right hand,

And you have made the Most High your abode,
There shall no evil
come near your tent;

To keep you in all your ways;

you up on their hands,
Lest you strike your foot on a stone.
You shall tread
on the lion and adder,
You shall trample on the young lion and dragon.
"Because of his love
for me I will deliver him,
I will exalt
him, for he knows my name.
He shall call upon me and I will answer
In time of trouble
I will be with him,
I will deliver him and bring him honor,
With long life
will I satisfy him,
him my power
