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
wMay all of those
ho 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.

Psalm 121 (I Will Lift Up My Eyes)

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

Verse 1
I will lift up my eyes unto the hills;
Where does my help come, where, but from the Lord?
Heaven and earth created by His will,
And He shall guide my steps by His own word.

Verse 2
The Lord who holds you, never will He sleep;
He never slumbers, while His own He keeps.
He will protect you, and shade you on your right;
And shield you from the sun, and moon by night.

Verse 3
God will protect from evil and from sin;
His promise keeps your soul, and will restore.
He guards your steps, your going out and in,
From now unto the end, forevermore.
