I have longed for thy salvation,
O Lord; and thy law is my delight.
Open thou mine eyes, that I may
behold wondrous things out of thy law.

~ * ~

The proud have digged pits for me,
which are not after thy law.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law;
yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

~ * ~

I delight to do thy will, O my God:
yea, thy law is within my heart.
Let thy tender mercies come unto me,
that I may live: for thy law is my delight.

~ * ~

I have remembered thy name, O Lord,
in the night, and have kept thy law.
Unless thy law had been my delights,
I should then have perished in mine affliction.

~ * ~

O how love I thy law!
It is my meditation all the day.
My soul is continually in my hand:
yet do I not forget thy law.

~ * ~

Thy righteousness is an everlasting
righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
So shall I keep thy law
continually for ever and ever.
