Hear my voice, Lord, when I call; have mercy on me and answer me.
“Come,” says my heart, “seek God’s face;” your face, Lord, do I seek.
Do not hide your face from me; do not repel your servant in anger.
You are my help; do not cast me off; do not forsake me, God my Savior!
Even if my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will take me in.

Psalm 27 continued – verses 7-10
