Because of his strength I will watch for You, For God is my stronghold.
O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness.
He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
"He will cry to Me, 'You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.'
