Melody and most harmony by Neill Dougall, 1776-1862 Clarke's Parochial Psalmody, 2nd ed., 1831
41 Let thy sweet mercies also come
And visit me, O Lord:
Let thy salvation come to me,
According to thy word.
42 So shall I have wherewith I may
Give him an answer just,
Who spitefully reproacheth me;
For in thy word I trust.
43 The word of truth out of my mouth
Take thou not utterly;
For on thy righteous judgments still
Doth all my hope rely.
44 So shall I keep for evermore
Thy law continually.
45 Because I have thy precepts sought,
I'll walk at liberty.
46 I'll speak thy word to kings, and I
Shall not be moved with shame;
47 And in thy laws I will delight,
For I have loved the same.
48 To thy commandments, which I loved,
My hands lift up I will;
And I will also meditate
Upon thy statutes still.
