119 (10)Psalm 119 Part 10
(verses 89-95)
FOR ever, Lord, Thy Word shall stand,
   Unchanging Word of Thine!
Sealed in the Heavens by Thy hand;
    Unfailing law divine!
2  Had not Thy Word been my delight
    When earthly joys were fled,
My soul, oppressed with sorrow’s weight,
    Had sunk amongst the dead.
3  Thus I shall love Thy Gospel more,
    And not forget Thy Word,
For I have felt its quickening power
    To draw me near the Lord.
4  Now I am Thine, for ever Thine,
    O keep Thy servant, Lord:
Thou art my shield, my hiding-place,
    My hope is in Thy Word.
