PSALM 119. Ninth Part. C.M.
The teaching of the Spirit with the Word. (cont.)

  3 But mark the road my feet should go,
   And be my constant guide.
  4 When I confess'd my wand'ring ways,
   Thou heard'st my soul complain;
Grant me the teachings of thy grace,
   Or I shall stray again.
  5 If God to me his statutes show,
   And heav'nly truth impart;
His work for ever I'll pursue,
   His law shall rule my heart.
  6 This was my comfort when I bore
   Variety of grief;
It made me learn thy word the more,
   And fly to that relief.
  7 In vain the proud deride me now;
   I'll ne'er forget thy law,
Nor let that blessed gospel go,
   Whence all my hopes I draw.
  8 When I have learn'd my Father's will,
   I'll teach the world his ways;
My thankful lips, inspir'd with zeal,
   Shall loud pronounce his praise.

PSALM 119. Tenth Part. C.M.
Pleading the promises.

  1 BEHOLD thy waiting servant, Lord,
   Devoted to thy fear;
Remember and confirm thy word:
   For all my hopes are there.
  2 Hast thou not sent salvation down,
   And promis'd quick'ning grace!
Doth not my heart address thy throne?
   And yet thy love delays.
  3 Mine eyed for thy salvation fail;
   O bear thy servant up!

PSALM 119. Tenth Part. C.M.
Pleading the promises. (cont.)

  3 Nor let the scoffing lips prevail,
   Which dare reproach my hope.
  4 Did'st thou not raise my faith, O Lord!
   Then let thy truth appear:
Saints shall rejoice in my reward,
   And trust as well as fear.

PSALM 119. Eleventh Part. C.M.
Breathing after holiness.

  1 O THAT the Lord would guide my ways
   To keep his statutes still!
O that my God would grant me grace
   To know and do his will!
  2 O send thy spirit down to write
   Thy law upon my heart!
Nor let my tongue indulge deceit,
   Nor act the liar's part.
  3 From vanity turn off my eyes;
   Let no corrupt design,
Nor covetous desires arise,
   Within this soul of mine.
  4 Order my footsteps by thy word,
   And make my heart sincere:
Let sin have no dominion, Lord;
   But keep my conscience clear.
  5 My soul hath gone too far astray,
   My feet too often slip;
Yet since I've not forgot thy way,
   Restore thy wand'ring sheep.
  6 Make me to walk in thy commands,
   'Tis a delightful road;
Nor let my head, nor heart, nor hands,
   Offend against my God.
