“Psalm 119: Teth”Categories: Hymns, M. W. Bassford
O Lord, according to Your pledge
Have You dealt well with me;
Teach wisdom to my trusting soul;
Instruct by Your decree.
Before distress, I went astray,
But now I serve with awe;
In heart and action, You are good;
O Lord, teach me Your law!
Though men besmear me with their lies,
I keep to what is right;
Despite the hardness of their hearts,
Your law is my delight.
The grief was good that taught my mind
To hear what You have told!
Your spoken word is better far
Than silver joined with gold!
Suggested tune: BROWN
