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

  5 The sharpest suff'rings, I endure,
   Flow from thy faithful care.
  6 Before I knew thy chast'ning rod,
   My feet were apt to stray;
But now I learn to keep thy word,
   Nor wander from thy way.

PSALM 119. Fifteenth Part. C.M.
Holy resolutions.

  1 O THAT thy statutes ev'ry hour
   Might dwell upon my mind!
Thence I derive a quick'ning pow'r,
   And daily peace I find.
  2 To meditate thy precepts, Lord,
   Shall be my sweet employ;
My soul shall ne'er forget thy word;
   Thy word is all my joy.
  3 How would I run in thy commands,
   Should'st thou my heart discharge
From sin, and Satan's hateful chains,
   And set my feet at large!
  4 My lips with courage shall declare
   Thy statutes and thy name;
I'll speak thy word, tho' kings should hear,
   Nor yield to sinful shame.
  5 Let bands of persecutors rise,
   To rob me of my right;
Let pride and malice forge their lies,
   Thy law is my delight.
  6 Depart from me, ye wicked race,
   Whose hands and hearts are ill:
I love my God, I love his ways,
   And must obey his will.

PSALM 119. Sixteenth Part. C.M.
Prayer for quickening grace.

  1 MY soul lies cleaving to the dust;
   Lord, give me life divine:
From vain desires and ev'ry lust,
   Turn off these eyes of mine.
  2 I need the influ'nce of thy grace
   To speed me in thy way;
Lest I should loiter in my race,
   Or turn my feet astray.
  3 When sore afflictions press me down,
   I need thy quick'ning pow'rs;
Thy word, that I have rested on,
   Shall cheer my heaviest hours.
  4 Are not thy mercies sov'reign still,
   And thou a faithful God?
"Wilt thou not grant me warmer zeal
   To run the heav'nly road?
  5 Does not my heart thy precepts love,
   And long to see thy face?
And yet how slow my spirits move,
   Without enliv'ning grace!
  6 Then shall I love thy gospel more,
   And ne'er forget thy word;
When I have felt its quick'ning pow'r,
   To draw me near the Lord.

PSALM 119. Seventeenth Part. L.M.
Grace shining in difficulties and trials.

  1 WHEN pain and anguish seize me, Lord,
All my support is from thy word:
My soul dissolves with heaviness,
Uphold me with thy strength'ning grace.
  2 The proud have fram'd their scoffs and lies,
They watch my feet with envious eyes;
