Psalm 119 (Your Hands Created)

Tune: Abide With Me
“Eventide” by William H. Monk, 1861
[Key: B]

Verse 1
Your hands created and established me.
Give understanding; Your commands I’ll learn.
May those who fear You see me and be glad;
When they have seen how to Your Word I turn.

Verse 2
O Lord, I know how right Your judgments are;
In faithfulness You have afflicted me.
As to Your servant, You once gave Your Word.
May Your unfailing love my comfort be.

Verse 3
Let Your compassion come to give me life.
For in Your law my joy is very great.
Shamed be the proud who wrong me with their lies.
But on your precepts I will meditate.

Verse 4
May all of those who fear You turn to me,
Those who Your testimonies know and claim.
May my heart keep Your statutes blamelessly;
So that I never may be put to shame.
