Psalm 119 - 21 (Schin)
FARRANT | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Old Church Psalmody, 1847
Adapt. John Hilton, d. 1608
161 Princes have persecuted me,
Although no cause they saw:
But still of thy most holy word
My heart doth stand in awe.
162 I at thy word rejoice, as one
Of spoil that finds great store.
163 Thy law I love; but lying all
I hate and do abhor.
164 Seven times a-day it is my care
To give due praise to thee;
Because of all thy judgments, Lord,
Which righteous ever be.
165 Great peace have they who love thy law;
Offence they shall have none.
166 I hoped for thy salvation, Lord,
And thy commands have done.
167 My soul thy testimonies pure
On them my heart is set, and them
I love exceedingly.
168 Thy testimonies and thy laws
I kept with special care;
For all my works and ways each one
Before thee open are.
