119N. Thou Art My Portion, Lord

1 Thou art my portion, Lord;
thy words I ever heed;
with all my heart thy grace I seek,
thy promises I plead.

2 I thought upon my ways,
thy testimonies learned;
with earnest haste, and waiting not,
to thy commands I turned.

3 While snares beset my path,
thy law I keep in view;
at midnight I will give thee praise
for all thy judgments true.

4 All those who fear thy name
shall my companions be;
thy mercy fills the earth, O Lord;
thy statutes teach thou me.
