Il Signore è mia luce e mia salvezza,

di chi avrò paura?

.

Il Signore è difesa della mia vita,

di chi avrò timore?

.

Ascolta, Signore, la mia voce.

Io grido: abbi pietà di me! Rispondimi.

.

Di Te ha detto il mio cuore: "Cercate il Suo Volto";

il Tuo volto, Signore, io cercherò.

.

Non nascondermi il Tuo Volto,

non respingere con ira il Tuo servo.

.

Sono certo di contemplare la bontà del Signore

nella terra dei viventi.

.

Spera nel Signore!

Sii forte!

Si rinfranchi il tuo cuore

e spera nel Signore.

.

Sì, spera nel Signore.

– Salmo 27:1,7-9,13-14

Translation (literal)

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
whom shall I fear?

Hear, O Lord, my voice,
I cry: have mercy on me, respond to me.

Of You my heart has said, “seek His Face!”
Your Face, Lord, I will seek.
.

Do not hide Your Face from me.

Do not reject Your servant away in anger,
.

I am sure that I shall see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.

Hope for the Lord!
Be strong!

Let your heart be bold;
and hope in the Lord!

Yes, hope in the Lord!
