P119u. On my affliction do thou look


153 On my affliction do thou look,
and me in safety set:
deliver me, O Lord, for I
thy law do not forget.
154 After thy word revive thou me:
save me, and plead my cause.
155 Salvation is from sinners far;
for they seek not thy laws.

156 O Lord, both great and manifold
thy tender mercies be:
according to thy judgments just
revive and quicken me.
157 My persecutors many are,
and foes that do combine;
yet from thy testimonies pure
my heart doth not decline.

158 I saw transgressors, and was grieved;
for they keep not thy word.
159 Behold, thy precepts I have loved,
in love me quicken, Lord.
160 The sum of thy most holy word
is only truth most pure:
thy righteous judgments every one
for evermore endure.
