Original text and translations
10 My eyes are fixed on you, O my strength;
for you, O God, are my stronghold.
18 For my part, I will sing of your strength;
I will celebrate your love in the morning;
19 For you have become my stronghold,
a refuge in the day of my trouble.
20 To you, O my Strength, will I sing;
for you, O God, are my stronghold
and my merciful God.
