Psalm 119 - 3 (Gimel)
EVAN | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
William H. Havergal, 1793-1870
17 With me thy servant, in thy grace,
Deal bountifully, Lord;
That by thy favour I may live,
And duly keep thy word.
18 Open mine eyes, that of thy law
The wonders I may see.
19 I am a stranger on the earth,
Hide not thy laws from me.
20 My soul within me breaks, and doth
Much fainting still endure,
Through longing that it hath all times
Unto thy judgments pure.
21 Thou hast rebuked the cursed proud,
Who from thy precepts swerve.
22 Reproach and shame remove from me,
For I thy laws observe.
23 Though princes in assembly sit,
And counsel 'gainst me take,
Thy statutes I, thy servant, still
My meditation make.
24 My comfort, and my heart's delight,
Thy testimonies be;
And they, in all my doubts and fears,
Are counsellors to me.
