Psalm 119 - 1 (Aleph)
JACKSON | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
1 BLESSED are they that undefiled,
And straight are in the way;
Who in the Lord's most holy law
Do walk, and do not stray.
2 Blessed are they who to observe
His statutes are inclined;
And who do seek the living God
With their whole heart and mind.
3 Such in his ways do walk, and they
Do no iniquity.
4 Thou hast commanded us to keep
Thy precepts carefully.
5 O that thy statutes to observe
Thou wouldst my ways direct!
6 Then shall I not be shamed when I
Thy precepts all respect.
7 Then with integrity of heart
Thee will I praise and bless,
When I the judgments all have learned
Of thy pure righteousness.
8 That I will keep thy statutes all
Firmly resolved have I:
O do not then, most gracious God,
Forsake me utterly.
