330. Illumination and Testimony

1 Thou, Who didst make and fashion me,
O make me wise, Thy law to learn;
Then they that fear Thee shall be glad
When they my hope in God discern.

2 Thou, Lord, art just in all Thy ways,
And faithful Thou chastenest me;
I pray Thee, let Thy promised grace
Thy servant's help and comfort be.

3 Show mercy, Lord, that I may live,
For in thy law is all my joy;
while those who wrong me are rebuked,
Thy precepts shall my thought employ.

4 Let those that fear Thee turn to me,
Thy truth to them will I proclaim;
Instruct my heart to keep Thy law,
That I may not be put to shame.
