But in the depths of my heart I truly know
that you have become my Shield;
You take me and surround me with yourself.
Your glory covers me continually.
You alone restore my courage;
for you lift high my head when I bow low in shame.
I have cried out to you and from your holy presence.
You send me a Father’s help.
So now I’ll lie down and go to sleep—
and I’ll awake in safety for you surround me with your glory.
Even though dark powers prowl around me,
with their words like sharp arrows, I won’t be afraid.
