Psalm 119 - 12 (Lamed)
FELIX | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
The Hallelujah, edited Lowell Mason, 1854 Founded on a phrase in Mendelssohn's Oratorio Christus
89 Thy word for ever is, O Lord,
In heaven settled fast;
90 And unto generations all
Thy faithfulness doth last;
The earth thou hast established,
And it abides by thee.
91 This day they stand as thou ordain'dst;
For all thy servants be.
92 Unless in thy most perfect law
My soul delights had found,
I should have perished at the time
My troubles did abound.
93 Thy precepts I will ne'er forget;
They quickening to me brought.
94 Lord, I am thine; O save thou me:
Thy precepts I have sought.
95 For me the wicked have laid wait,
Me seeking to destroy:
But I thy testimonies true
Consider will with joy.
96 An end of all perfection here
Have I beheld, O God;
But thy command no limit hath,
It is exceeding broad.
