PSALM 119. First Part. C.M.
The blessedness of saints, and misery of sinners. (cont.)

  1 BLEST are the undefil'd in heart,
   Whose ways are right and clean;
Who never from thy law depart,
   But fly from ev'ry sin.
  2 Blest are the men that keep thy word,
   And practise thy commands;
With their whole heart they seek the Lord,
   And serve him with their hands.
  3 Great is their peace who love thy law,
   How firm their souls abide!
Nor can a bold temptation draw
   Their steady feet aside.
  4 Then shall my heart have inward joy,
   And keep my face from shame;
When all thy statutes I obey,
   And honour all thy name.
  5 But haughty sinners God will hate;
   The proud shall die accurst:
The sons of falsehood and deceit
   Are trodden to the dust.
  6 Vile as the dross the wicked are;
   And those that leave thy ways
Shall see salvation from afar,
   But never taste thy grace,

PSALM 119. Second Part. C.M.
Spiritual mindedness.

  1 TO thee, before the dawning light,
   My gracious God, I pray;
I meditate thy name by night,
   And keep thy law by day.
  2 My spirit faints to see thy grace,
   Thy promise bears me up;

PSALM 119. Second Part. C.M.
Spiritual mindedness. (cont.)

  2 And, while salvation long delays,
   Thy word supports my hope.
  3 Seven times a-day I lift my hands,
   And pay my thanks to thee:
Thy righteous providence demands
   Repeated praise from me.
  4 When midnight darkness veils the skies,
   I call thy works to mind;
My thoughts in warm devotion rise,
   And sweet acceptance find.

PSALM 119. Third Part. C.M.
Repentance and obedience.

  1 THOU art my portion, O my God:
   Soon as I know thy way,
My heart makes haste t' obey thy word,
   And suffers no delay.
  2 I choose the path of heav'nly truth,
   And glory in my choice:
Not all the riches of the earth
   Could make me so rejoice.
  3 The testimonies of thy grace,
   I set before mine eyes;
Thence I derive my daily strength,
   And there my comfort lies.
  4 If once I wander from thy path,
   I think upon my ways;
Then turn my feet to thy commands,
   And trust thy pard'ning grace.
  5 Now I am thine, for ever thine,
   O save thy servant, Lord!
Thou art my shield, my hiding-place;
   My hope is in thy word.
  6 Thou hast inclin'd this heart of mine,
   Thy statutes to fulfil:
