Rock and Salvation

Mission San Juan Capistrano
 
Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

Rock and salvation,
I shall not be greatly moved—
you are my defense.

Finding fragrant spoil,
a honeybee’s rejoicing
sweetens April’s air.
