Psalm 119 (My Grief Regard)

The Book of Psalms for Worship
Tune: When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
“Hamburg” By Lowell Mason 1824

Verse 1
My grief regard and rescue me,
For I do not Your law forget.
My cause defend; redeem my soul;
Your promise keep; revive me yet.

Verse 2
Rescue is far from wicked ones
For they Your statutes do not seek.
Your mercies, Lord, how great they are!
As you have judged, new life give me.

Verse 3
Many are my tormenting foes,
Yet from Your law I will not turn.
I see and loathe the treacherous
For they Your word forever spurn.

Verse 4
See how I love Your precepts way!
Lord, in Your love, give life to me.
The sum of all Your words is truth;
Your judgements stand eternally.
