Yet I am always (continually, perpetually, constantly, like the daily sacrifice) with you;
you hold (grasp, take hold, seize, take possession of) me by my right hand.
You guide me (guide tenderly, lead me away captive, conduct me along the path) with your counsel (plan, purpose),
and afterwards you will take (get, fetch, lay hold of, seize, acquire, buy, bring, marry, snatch, take away, receive) me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire (delight in, take pleasure in, bend down to) besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail (be spent, be used up, waste away, be exhausted, come to an end, vanish, perish, be destroyed),
is the strength (the Rock, refuge) of my heart and my portion (allotment, possession, territory, inheritance) forever (everlastingly, unending future, to the vanishing point, eternally, without end).
