41 Let thy sweet mercies also come
and visit me, O Lord;
Ev’n thy benign salvation,
according to thy word.

42 So shall I have wherewith I may
give him an answer just,
Who spitefully reproacheth me;
for in thy word I trust.

43 The word of truth out of my mouth
take thou not utterly;
For on thy judgments righteous
my hope doth still rely.

44 So shall I keep for evermore
thy law continually.
45 And, sith that I thy precepts seek,
I’ll walk at liberty.

46 I’ll speak thy word to kings, and I
with shame shall not be mov’d;
47 And will delight myself always
in thy laws, which I lov’d.

48 To thy commandments, which I lov’d,
my hands lift up I will;
And I will also meditate
upon thy statutes still.
