PSALM 119. Twelfth Part. C.M.
Breathing after comfort and deliverance.

  1 MY God, consider my distress,
   Let mercy plead my cause:
Tho' I have sinn'd against thy grace,
   I can't forget thy laws.
  2 Forbid, forbid the sharp reproach,
   Which I so justly fear:
Uphold my life, uphold my hopes,
   Nor let my shame appear.
  3 Be thou a surety, Lord, for me,
   Nor let the proud oppress;
But make thy waiting servant see
   The shinings of thy face.
  4 Mine eyes with expectation fail:
   My heart within me cries,
"When will the Lord his truth fulfil,
   "And make my comforts rise?"
  5 Look down upon my sorrows, Lord,
   And show thy grace the same;
As thou art ever wont t' afford
   To those, that love thy name.

PSALM 119. Thirteenth Part. C.M.
Holy fear and tenderness of conscience.

  1 WITH my whole heart I've sought thy face;
   Then let me never stray
From thy commands, O God of grace;
   Nor tread the sinner's way.
  2 Thy word I've hid within my heart
   To keep my conscience clean,
And be an everlasting guard
   From ev'ry rising sin.
  3 I'm a companion of the saints,
   Who fear and love the Lord;

PSALM 119. Thirteenth Part. C.M.
Holy fear and tenderness of conscience. (cont.)

  3 My sorrows rise, my nature faints,
   When men transgress thy word.
  4 While sinners do thy gospel wrong,
   My spirit stands in awe:
My soul abhors a lying tongue;
   But loves thy righteous law.
  5 My heart with sacred rev'rence hears
   The threat'nings of thy word;
My flesh with holy trembling fears
   The judgments of the Lord.
  6 My God, I long, I hope, I wait
   For thy salvation still;
While thy whole law is my delight,
   And I obey thy will.

PSALM 119. Fourteenth Part. C.M.
Benefit of afflictions, and support under them.

  1 CONSIDER all my sorrows, Lord,
   And thy deliv'rance send:
My soul for thy salvation faints;
   When will my troubles end?
  2 Yet I have found it good for me
   To bear my Father's rod;
Afflictions make me learn thy law,
   And live upon my God.
  3 This is the comfort I enjoy,
   When new distress begins;
I read thy word, I run thy ways,
   And hate my former sins.
  4 Had not thy word been my delight,
   When earthly joys had fled,
My soul, opprest with sorrow's weight,
   Had sunk among the dead.
  5 I know thy judgments, Lord, are right,
   Tho' they may seem severe:
