FARRANT | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Old Church Psalmody, 1847
Adapt. John Hilton, d. 1608
169 O let my earnest prayer and cry
Come near before thee, Lord:
Give understanding unto me,
According to thy word.
170 Let my request before thee come:
After thy word me free.
171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou
Hast taught thy laws to me.
172 My tongue of thy most blessed word
Shall speak, and it confess;
For truly thy commandments all
Are perfect righteousness.
173 O let thy hand be help to me:
Thy precepts are my choice.
174 I longed for thy salvation, Lord,
And in thy law rejoice.
175 O let my soul live, and it shall
Give praises unto thee;
And let thy judgments righteous
Be helpful unto me.
176 I, like a lost sheep, went astray;
Thy servant seek, and find:
For thy commands I suffered not
To slip out of my mind.
