|119 (7)||Psalm 119 Part 7|
|THOU art my portion, O my God,
I’m pledged to keep Thy way,
To willingly obey Thy Word,
And act without delay.
|2||If I should wander from Thy path,
I’ll think upon my ways,
Then turn my steps to Thy commands
And seek Thy pardoning grace.
|3||At night, when duty’s clamour dies,
I’ll call Thy works to mind;
Bid thoughts in warm devotion rise,
And Thine acceptance find.
|4||All they who own Thy saving ways
Shall my companions be;
With them I’ll join in prayer and praise,
In fear and love of Thee.
|5||Thy mercies fill the earth, O Lord;
How good Thy works appear!
Open my eyes to know Thy Word,
And love Thy wonders there.
|Isaac Watts, 1674-1748|
