P119t. With my whole heart I cried, Lord, hear


145 With my whole heart I cried, Lord, hear;
I will thy word obey.
146 I cried to thee; Save me, and I
will keep thy laws alway.
147 I of the morning did prevent
the dawning with my cry:
for all my hope and confidence
did on thy word rely.

148 Mine eyes did wakefully prevent
the watches of the night,
that in thy word with careful mind
then meditate I might.
149 After thy loving-kindness hear
my voice, that calls on thee:
according to thy judgment, Lord,
revive and quicken me.

150 The men who mischief seek draw nigh;
they from thy law are far:
151 but thou art near, O Lord; and truth
all thy commandments are.
152 From thine own testimonies, long
hath this been known to me,
that thou hast founded them to last
unto eternity.
