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

  2 And tempt my soul to snares and sin;
Yet thy commands I ne'er decline.
  3 They hate me, Lord, without a cause;
They hate to see me love thy laws;
But I will trust and fear thy name,
Till pride and malice die with shame.

PSALM 119. Eighteenth Part. L.M.
Sanctified afflictions.

  1 FATHER, I bless thy gentle hand;
How kind was thy chastising rod,
That forc'd my conscience to a stand,
And brought my wand'ring soul to God!
  2 Foolish and vain I went astray,
Ere I had felt thy scourges, Lord;
I left my guide, and lost my way;
But now I love and keep thy word.
  3 'Tis good for me to wear the yoke,
For pride is apt to rise and swell:
'Tis good to bear my Father's stroke,
That I might learn his statutes well.
  4 The law, that issues from thy mouth,
Shall raise my cheerful passions more,
Than all the treasures of the South,
Or Western hills of golden ore.
  5 Thy hands have made my mortal frame,
Thy Spirit form'd my soul within:
Teach me to know thy wondrous name,
And guard me safe from death and sin.
  6 Then all that love and fear the Lord,
At my salvation shall rejoice:
For I have hoped in thy word,
And made thy grace my only choice.

PSALM 119. Nineteenth Part. L.M.
Sanctified afflictions.

  1 KEEP me from fainting in my prayers,
When to thy footstool, Lord, I come:
My soul with God would leave her cares,
And hope for mercy from the throne.
  2 Kindle a flame of love and zeal,
While wrestling for the grace I need;
Bring me by faith within the vail,
And help me ardently to plead.
  3 Known to the Lord are all my sighs:
I will not yield to unbelief;
But persevere with fervent cries,
Until he hear and grant relief.

PSALM 119. Twentieth Part. C.M.
Resting upon the Word.

  1 REMEMBER all my sorrows, Lord,
   And do as thou hast said;
Send help according to thy word,
   And give the promis'd aid.
  2 Repeated mercies in a train
   Demand my gratitude;
And these my faith and hope sustain,
   That more will be bestow'd.
  3 Renew thy work of grace, then, Lord,
   Nor let my soul complain;
That, while I rest upon thy word,
   My hopes are still in vain.

PSALM 119. Twenty-First Part. L.M.
An appeal to the Searcher of hearts.

  1 SEARCHER and Saviour of my soul,
My Sun, my Shield, my sov'reign Judge,
All things are naked to thy view,
My heart, my thoughts, my words, my ways.
