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.
