Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #P133 (1800) Meter: 18.104.22.168 Hymnal Title: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases First Line: Remember, Lord, thy gracious word Lyrics:
49Remember, Lord, thy gracious word
thou to thy servant spake,
Which, for a ground of my sure hope,
thou causedst me to take.
50This word of thine my comfort is
in mine affliction:
For in my straits I am reviv’d
by this thy word alone.
51The men whose hearts with pride are stuff’d
did greatly me deride;
Yet from thy straight commandements
I have not turn’d aside.
52Thy judgments righteous, O Lord,
which thou of old forth gave,
I did remember, and myself
by them comforted have.
53Horror took hold on me, because
ill men thy law forsake.
54I in my house of pilgrimage
thy laws my songs do make.
55Thy name by night, Lord, I did mind,
and I have kept thy law.
56And this I had, because thy word
I kept, and stood in awe.
