Psalm 119 - 17 (Pe)
BALLERMA | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Robert Simpson, 1790-1832, from a melody probably by Francois Hippolyte Barthelemon, 1741-1808
129 Thy statutes, Lord, are wonderful,
My soul them keeps with care.
130 The entrance of thy words gives light,
Makes wise who simple are.
131 My mouth I also opened have,
And panted earnestly;
For after thy commandments I
Have longed exceedingly.
132 Look on me, Lord, and merciful
Do thou unto me prove,
As thou art wont to do to those
Thy name who truly love.
133 O let my footsteps in thy word
Aright still ordered be:
Let no iniquity obtain
Dominion over me.
134 From man's oppression save thou me;
So keep thy laws I will.
135 Thy face make on thy servant shine:
Teach me thy statutes still.
136 Rivers of water from mine eyes
Ran down, because I saw
That wicked men go on in sin,
And do not keep thy law.
